My name is Ian Bride, an artist and academic based in Kent, UK.

I am primarily interested in exploring the human/nature discourse through a narrative practice that engages with objects (natural and human-made) and a range of processes. As well as being a qualified cabinet-maker, who knows how to work with wood, I am comfortable experimenting with almost all objects and materials, and relish the opportunity to work with like-minded people on materialising creative ideas through experiential learning using a wide variety of tools and techniques. 

My university website references another major part of my life:
