I’m a multidisciplinary artist with a particular interest in using old and new technology together to make images that couldn’t possibly exist if they hadn’t been combined.

I work with cyanotype, old typewriters, plotters, jigsaws, and off-cut maps, alongside video tools like Zoom and Shutter, and single board computers like Raspberry Pi.

Where my plotted work is concerned, much of it is based on my own algorithms, and I’m currently working on a process for drawing portraits from photos in a single unbroken line using a Bic ballpoint, each of which can take up to 12 hours to complete.

When not making art, I’m a writer, and have spent 25 years as a journalist and editor across a range of publications including Good Housekeeping, Auto Express, The Guardian and the Evening Standard. I’ve also written several novels and non-fiction books.
