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 and have delivered a number of successful projects in both primary and secondary schools as well as within the wider community.

Working as a Creative Producer and collaborator, exploring Exquisite Corpse and other parlour games, with classical musicians, writers and visual artists. The residency will take place in August in Toreilles France and culminate in an exhibition of the works produced during this time in and around the town.

 


artist

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. Having originally trained and worked as a professional dancer, 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 utilize the Everyday as a framework to explore these notions and often invite identified groups to perform tasks with or for me. In the past I have made work with scientists, dancers, Islamic women and groups of athletes.


creative practitioner

Alongside my practice as an artist, I am passionate about promoting engagement in creative learning and for many years I have used my creative skills to devise exciting and diverse projects within schools and communities. I am a keen advocate of facilitating learning through a broad range of processes, including animation, collage, film and photography as well as performance.
