artist bio

I am an artist, researcher and writer whose practice oscillates around human rights, ecology and interspecies dynamics, and incorporates film, photography, sound and installation. I employ these mediums to produce intimate spaces for reflection and embodied sensory experiences. My practice is partly informed by my PhD, which investigated art’s role in social change. In the contemporary climate, I understand art to hold power when it opens up empathetic spaces, including those beyond the human. I am currently conducting an extended artist residency in the Peak District. Recently, my writing on grief was published by Haus-a-rest, and my short film, Stronger than Glass (2020), brought together the realities of Victorian glass washing up along the River Thames with my experiences of loss.
