Neave House, Minting


Repatriation back into my birth county has had a startling creative impact on my practice. 


The ambivalences of being here, the landscape, the environment and the familial memories all fold into my writing. 


The richness of this piece is an arboreal and zelophilic take on Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Happy Prince’ with a local and ancestral glossary.

I am an artist residing on the edge of rural Lincolnshire. This liminality provides me with a different take on the relationship between my immediate habitat and the earthy surroundings beyond. 


I travel between the capital and the countryside; the abruption is echoed in my practice. I often get lost, distracted, lose track, meander and dawdle dog-legged throughout the day… 


I sculpt, write, print, re-print, collect and re-purpose ridiculous objects.  


Recently I graduated from the Royal College of Art in London and the University of Lincoln. 


I have exhibited internationally: New York, Auckland, Beijing, Paris and Scunthorpe. My work is in both public and private collections.
