I am an artist, educator, independent curator and producer with over 18 years of experience in the creative sector.
I have significant experience in fundraising and have managed and delivered projects in education, health and community settings across the UK and overseas. Having worked for numerous years at QUAD as Creative Wellbeing Curator, I am now Education Curator at Fermynwoods Contemporary Arts and Artistic Director at Craft Wood CIC.
As an interdisciplinary artist I work across a wide variety of media.
My socially engaged practise frequently explores digital technologies in a visual arts context, seeking to merge analogue arts and craft activity with creative digital technologies.
My own practise often reconfigures the familiar as a source of surprise or humour, in an attempt to interrupt the mundanity of the everyday, mark the passage of time or question the marks and traces we leave as evidence of our existence.
There is often a sense of the absurd or humour in my work, together with an economy of language, that seeks to prompt the viewer to double-take or renegotiate their perception of the world.
