introduction

I am a practising artist, having trained at Central St. Martins School of Art (BA Hons) and Goldsmiths College (MA Fine Art). As well as pursuing my own projects, I am also passionate about promoting creative thinking within schools and the wider community and have delivered a number of successful projects in both primary and secondary schools.

In collaboration with Curious Planet, I have been commissioned by Tunbridge Wells Borough Council to produce a series of short films responding to spectatorship within sport. The films will be exhibited at Tunbridge Wells Museum & Gallery in June 2012 as part of The Spectator exhibition.

My practise resides around participatory art and the notion of collaborative practice. These interactions culminate in video & live art installations and have been shown in various locations within the UK and internationally. Many of my works examine pattern and repetition, referencing ritual and custom and can range from a prescribed action to something spontaneously captured on camera. I am currently developing a project involving groups of refugees, asylum seekers and dance students to explore modes of communication and visibility.

other

For three years I was a Creative Agent for the Royal Opera House Creative Partnerships in the Thames Gateway area of Essex. I over saw a broad range of projects in primary and secondary schools including a special school. Many of the objectives set out for the projects were linked to the schools self development plans and aimed to set about a change within their school. This ranged from the attitude of pupil learning to embedding creative learning throughout the institute.
