I studied fine art at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne where my interest in industrial spaces began during sketching trips to Swan Hunter shipyard on the River Tyne. Images focus on the changing industrial landscapes of the North and ways in which nature responds when large industrial structures are abandoned: shipyards, power-stations and steel furnaces. I often visit the same sites many times, documenting the changes taking place. Recent work has been particularly inspired by frequent visits to Ulverston, Barrow in Furness, Merseyside and Anglesey and explores relationships between the industry that was and the nature that remains.
