is a ClimateCultures Author

“I am a visual artist interested in the relationship between humans and nature, how we perceive, romanticise and translate the landscape and our influence on the environment. Air pollution, water quality, invasive plant species, weeds, bees and weather are all subjects my work has dealt with previously, with the results taking the form of installations, interventions, habitat creation, drawings, maps and walks. Most recently I was awarded a Lucas Artist Fellowship to Montalvo in California where I connected with scientists at NASA and UC Berkeley looking at issues surrounding extreme weather. I have been commissioned by Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Compton Verney, Peak, Bronte Parsonage Museum, Grizedale Arts, Bluecoat and Landlife. Awards include a Gasworks International Fellowship with CONA in Mumbai, India and I have been invited to attend residencies at the Nirox Foundation in South Africa, at Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts and The Lowry.”
