As an artist I seek to explore what are often traditionally seen as dichotomies: The relationships between art and science; religion and science; religion and art. I find these divisions fascinating and fertile ground for my creativity. I am also interested in how art, science and religion use metaphor and models to convey ideas and meanings and use this in my practice. This has led me to produce pieces that explore the nature of reality, quantum physics, cosmology and I am currently developing a Stations of the Cross based on the visualisation of scientific constants.
Prior to becoming an artist I qualified as a medical microbiologist and became a Fellow of the Institute of Biomedical Sciences. Following 10 years working in the NHS as I moved into scientific sales and marketing working for a number of national and international companies. During this time I also acted as technical and scientific support for the sales and marketing teams and organised and spoke at a number of training courses on medical device sterilisation and microbiology. I have presented at a number of conferences in the UK and abroad on laboratory automation, pathology data collection and bioburden characterisation.
