Hello! I get about a bit so here about me first. I am a visual artist and poet who works within the context of fine art. My work is grounded in documentary, exploring the inner beauty of everyday life through various lens based media.

Instinctively I exploring the townscapes of North Wales and the North West, often producing work that reflects the every day minutiae of life.
