I am a multidisciplinary artist based in Boston, Lincolnshire and a founding member of the Lincoln based artist group General Practice I am also on the curatorial team and a board member of Slumgothic at X-Church in Gainsborough.

The core of my practice is an exploration of interconnectedness. The phrase, ‘touching, not mastering’, borrowed from Laura U. Marks, describes my approach towards materials, activities and the people I work with. The non-specificity of medium and process in my work places the emphasis on the nature of relationship itself. Collaboration is a key focus of my practice, working with others, becoming intimate with their ways of seeing and being, continuously shifts my own perspective. 

Alongside my art and curatorial practice I am a qualified coach and offer support to artists in their personal and professional development.
