About

—  About me and how to get in touch

Oh hey.

I make original multi-textured and layered encounters, experiences and spaces; mixing installation, media forms and craft. I’d describe my work as exploring what connects us as human beings and having fun blurring the lines between reality and art. I call myself a multi-disciplinary artist as I use a lorra different materials, tools, forms and techniques in my work. I’m effectively a big old magpie.

I love imagining something in my head and making it with my hands, the therapeutic power of craft and transforming environments to make them more joyful.

I’ve made work for the past ten years, which has flexed and grown with me as my interests and ways of working have changed, which you could say has resulted in a fairly eclectic archive of work, which I’ve attempted to group into categories to help you navigate…

Live Art & Performance work

Community/Participation driven work

Installation and Visual Art work

I’ve presented work at SPILL National Review of Live Art, BAC, Forest Fringe, Deptford X, The Late Shows Newcastle, The Basement Brighton, Camden People’s Theatre, RichMix, The Bluecoat, Barbican Plymouth, Shoreditch Town Hall, Queen’s Hall Hexham, Whitstable Biennale Satellite and on the streets of Manhattan via Art in Odd Places.

As well as delivering my own projects, I have been commissioned by a wide range of partners including NewcastleGateshead Initiative, Juice festival, bait and The Empty Space.

I am currently a Freelance Artist at BALTIC CENTRE FOR CONTEMPORARY ARTS

I collaborate regularly with artist Louise Orwin previously under the guise of Lemonade and Laughing Gas, now just me and her.
