I am an artist living and working in Mile End, London, but originally from Essex. I collaborate with another artist called Paul Good, and we have been working together now for 4 years under the name of Less.

Less., started as a university art band, but now culminates in minimal installation based sculpture, using elements of the original bands equipment and ideas. At present most of our work involves casting parts of our drum kit, but more recently our attention has moved of the viewer of our work, and how to use them in a performance capacity.

We also run an protect and installation space in Mile End called SHIFT., which is now about to go into its 3rd year of operation. SHIFT. mainly shows installation sight specific work, often offering newly graduating artists a first solo show, where they are able to use the space as a studio for the 3 week prior to the show opening.</pre>
