WORK   INFO 





I’m a Hastings-based artist and writer.

Working across photography, writing, artists’ books, print, video and performance, my work addresses political and social themes relating to the lived experience, queer identity and history, ageing, memory and the human relationship to nature.

Being playful is key to my making as I explore the potential of the juxtaposition of image, text and tactile form. Physical presence and collaboration are integral to my practice.

Graduating in 2019 with an MA Fine Art (Distinction) from Cambridge School of Art, my MA show was awarded the 2019 Cambridge Artworks Residency.

I’m the publisher of Negative Press London (www.neg-press.com) with books in international collections including Museum of Modern Art, New York; Wellcome Foundation, London; Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and Artists’ Book Collection, Bavarian State Library, Munich, Germany.

My writing appears in anthologies, journals and academic publications.

Exhibitions include Photofusion, London; Bruce Castle Museum, London; Foyles Gallery, London; Dutch Centre, London; Ruskin Gallery, Cambridge; Arnolfini, Bristol; Bury Art Museum, Bury; and Marginal Arts Festival, Roanoke, Virginia, US.
