I work with writing, moving image, sound and performance. My work often combines literary and pop culture references to create fragmented monologues, dialogues, soundtracks and auto/biographical semi-fictions. I recently received a Jerwood Visual Arts artist bursary to develop a body of work experimenting with the live and recorded voice. Upcoming solo projects include Somewhere in the Crowd There’s You, the ESP Members Show at Eastside Projects, Birmingham in March 2019.
I also have a collaborative practice with artist Cinzia Mutigli. We have been making lo-fi performance, sound and publication works, as well as initiating projects and performance events with other artists, since 2013. Our recent performance, Being Sharon, was commissioned for Experimentica 18, Chapter's annual international performance and live art festival in Cardiff.
I have a studio at Spit and Sawdust in Cardiff, an artspace and skatepark where I curate The Billboard Commission, (supported by the Arts Council of Wales.)
I’m a member of Yellow Back Books, a collaborative project around artist books, self-publishing and experimental writing with Clare Charles, Sam Hasler, Louise Hobson and Becca Thomas.
I’m also part of Syllabus III, a UK based peer-led alternative learning programme with nine other artists, which was jointly delivered with Wysing Arts Centre, Eastside Projects, Spike Island, Studio Voltaire, Invia, S1 Artspace and New Contemporaries in 2017 - 2018.
