I am based in South East London and work in a range of media including photography, collage, painting and stitch. I am particularly interested in combining materials and processes to create new textures and associations, and the way in which surfaces become a repository for memory and experience.
I spent several years working in theatre and performance for companies such as Ra Ra Zoo Circus Theatre and the International Workshop Festival. I have performed at and written for events at venues including the Plunge Club, Oval House Theatre and Theatre 501 in London and the Elysium Gallery in Cardiff. My article ‘Locations’, about Agnes Varda, memories of place and the creative process, was published in Jaws Journal in 2021.
I have an MA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins and am a qualified teacher with extensive experience working in schools, providing staff training and running workshops for all ages in a range of venues.
I believe that art as a way to share experience is increasingly necessary, creating a sense of community and a new way to look at familiar places and problems. I have been a Board member of the Deptford X festival since 2020.
