Profile .jpeg

Birmingham based, raised by Wolverhampton, nurtured by Derby, born in Leeds. I make art, in particular; visual, audio, and written works. My work is about opposites, parallels, memory, love, loss, mortality, and the politics of belonging within self and in society. My concurrent practice as a Social Worker keeps me tied to the lives, stories and experiences of the most vulnerable and complex members of society, whilst being a jigsaw piece in ensuring children in care have the best futures possible.
