How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I make magic. My research is based on a love of ritual culture, folk religion, folk arts, and animism. I make contemporary objects to fulfil the function of personal ritual.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Producing things which would not exist without me.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I am a figurative artist, but mostly I am a maker.

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

I teach at Hereford College of Arts as a visiting lecturer across the Crafts courses, and have a private studio at Unit 6 in Hereford where I work full time as a maker. I am also a professional chef-for-hire, amongst too many other things.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

Ba Hons, and MA Crafts from Hereford College of Arts
