Me

B. London 1977.

My practice is self-reflective, inspired by my recent rehabilitation from a life-changing accident. I voice the challenges of the physical and mental barriers I have had to navigate, framed within a wider cultural, social and political context. The interdisciplinary nature of my practice enables me to experiment with different media from installation to sculpture, dry-point etching, screen printing and interactive real-time 3D media. I am particularly interested in experimenting with extended reality, coding and medical data to develop this narrative.

 

On this journey of catharsis, my artwork is a therapeutic process and a catalyst for social change. I use art to promote positive mental health and to share creativity in accessible, inclusive and diverse surroundings. I explore the intersectionality between a body in crisis, disablism and the welfare state. I focus on these areas to highlight the inequalities created by austerity, the cost of living and the welfare state; and I work to establish communities connected by critical socio-political commentary and artist-led activism.
