Q) Where did you grow up and what kind of education did you receive?
"I grew up in a village in the West Midlands, I went to the local secondary school, followed by Stratford-Upon-Avon college and finally ending up at Chelsea College of Art. I enjoyed my experience at Stratford the best, my tutors were inspirational and pushed me in every way I needed. It's the place I have the most fond memories of, it was the first time I felt a taste of what it's like to be surrounded by like-minded people."
Q) How long have you been working at the Tate and what's the best show you've seen there?
"I've been working at Tate for a couple of years, I've worked in a few different departments for both Tate Gallery and Tate Enterprises.
-John Baldessari, Pure Beauty in 2009 left me with no words, that show is imprinted into my memory forever. I'm struggling even now to put into words how that show made me feel, so I'll leave it as the most important exhibition I saw during my formative years."

Q) What can you tell me about the work you're exhibiting in the Tate Modern show?
- These 2 postcards belong to an ongoing project. I don't currently know where it's headed and for now I am happy with that. I deprived myself of making work for a long time and I am simply enjoying the process of creating things again.
