I am an artist from Bristol, U.K. whose practice includes; printmaking, book arts, visual poetry and performance. My work stems from an interest in the handwritten mark, and is inspired by asemic writing, rooted in abstract expressionism. These organic compositions allude to a tension of conscious and subconscious mark-making, and allow for understanding to happen across all linguistic meaning.
This multi-functional corner of digital space will be utilised to explore and discuss my ideas and influences, and allow an insight into my artistic practice, progression, and research methodologies.
