About me:

I graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2008 and moved to Luton in 2010 where I now have a studio. Luton is a diverse and challenging place to work with an interesting undercurrent of creative projects and industries. Since moving here, I have worked on number of community arts projects including an empty shops project in High Town and two large scale mural projects in Subways in Stopsley. I have also developed my art practice through a 2 year artist residency at a local historical site: The Luton Hoo Walled Garden.

In my art practice I work in a variety of mediums exploring themes of temporality, memory, process and exchange. My work is concept driven, often inspired by the natural landscape. I have exhibited work across the UK and in Ireland and New York.

At university I specialised in 3D and developed a number of skills in using different materials. I now work in a variety of mediums, mainly drawing, embroidery & photography.
