ABOUT

 

​I am a London-born photographer and printer who now lives in Minneapolis. I use photography to render landscapes, both real and imagined, playing with tensions between geography and experience. I am particularly interested in applying experimental technology to push the capabilities of handmade historical photographic printmaking processes.

My work has been widely exhibited across the US and UK, I am a four-time recipient of fellowships from the Minnesota State Arts Board, and I was awarded a place in the Minnesota Center for Book Arts/Jerome Foundation mentorship program.

I regulary teach workshops at the Highpoint Center for Printmaking and the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
