Statement

My art practice has been the observation of how we value others through class, wealth and privilege.

I initially started printmaking on paper but quickly found I enjoyed etching the metal plates the most, so now a majority of my work process concentrates on etching/spraying/inking on recycled printing plates.

A large influence has been volunteering for the Streetfood Penzance Project, a charity providing food to its guests every evening. In January 2021 I changed the focus of my work, from the extreme poverty in local communities to the extreme wealth of individuals in the UK and globally.
