BA (Hons) Fine Art, Teesside University, MIMA School of Art and Design.

“I use photography to consider the relationship of geometric forms in derelict, and disused, neglected buildings. I study the idea of ruin through documentary photography, to question time and decay, or when a location becomes a ruin.

My work explores unused spaces that are present in our everyday surroundings, mostly desolation of streets and the destruction of dwellings where individuals live or once lived. The aim is to question the effect of consumerism and neglect towards communities in the northeast.”
