Mancot Royal, Deeside, Flintshire
I am an Environmental Artist based in North Wales and West Cumbria and I create site specific installations and drawings in a variety of contrasting urban and natural environments.

I am an Environmental Artist working with a wide range of mixed media and materials that are used to create temporary installations,sculpture and drawing.I attended Wrexham and Edinbugh College Of Art ,graduating in 1989 with a degree in Ceramics. Since then I have been self-employed as a professional artist, exhibiting my work in a wide variety of galleries, museums and other venues across the UK and internationally.I work in many contrasting rural and urban locations, creating site specific sculptures which are photographically documented using a mixture of digital and medium format film processes. I exhibit large photographs of the installations, together with related drawings and other mixed media artworks.My inspiration is derived from many sources, such as aspects related to the natural world, historic and industrial locations and more recently issue based concerns linked to ecology and consumerism. I have  undertaken and participated in many art projects across Britain and abroad, participating in residency and exchange programmes often combining my own work and educational activities.I have been as artist in residence in many countries such as Australia, America and across Europe, creating sculptures and drawings, representing various galleries and host organisations and working in a diverse range of ecological habitats. I have also participated in many festivals and community programmes.


For the past three years I have initiated my own sculptural projects, working in a variety of industrial locations such as a derelict hat factory, an iron ore mine and beaches affected by the presence of past industrial activity. More recently the work I have created is issue based art that deals with contemporary ecological concerns and reflect my change from mainly working with natural materials to using man made products.

I also conduct art educational workshops for schools and special access needs and family groups, helping to motivate and inspire people of all ages and abilities. I have conducted and delivered a wide range of workshop activities that includes environmental and recycled art, mural/mixed media and drawing sessions in many schools and venues. In addition, I have participated in a diverse range of international educational projects such as snow sculpture for a university in America, pavement art in Dubai, land art in Tasmania and environmental art workshops for schools, community and youth groups in Spain, Poland and Germany.

I have been a Creative Agent for the Arts Council of Wales on the Creative Learning Scheme as well as a National Advisor for educational activities.

I have won art awards and bursaries in competitions and open art exhibitions over the years and in addition have been a recipient of travel awards for various artist in residence posts and projects in the UK and abroad.
