About Me

I am a Wiltshire (UK) based visual artist working with people and places. I research different places through walking/cycling, collecting and recording, and I reflect on/share these experiences through making.


Underpinning all areas of my practice, is a belief in the need to develop new ways of seeing and being with the world, in this time of climate breakdown and biodiversity loss, and the importance of including queer and neurodivergent experiences/voices.


About My Practice

I work with a variety of media, choosing those of relevance to the place/subject matter, from 'natural' and recycled materials, gathered locally, to photographs, text and video. The resulting artwork may take the form of small hand-held objects, wearable artwork, freestanding sculpture or large site-specific installations.


This individual side of my practice is interwoven with participatory elements, writing and mentoring. The individual and the participatory each feed into and inform the other, generating a body of practice-led research into the value of artful, embodied and situated (place-based) practices.
