Lives and works in Wrexham

Bio: In 2014 I obtained a postgraduate diploma from the Royal Academy Schools. I live and work in Wales and have recently completed the unit(e) summer school programme at G39, Cardiff, 2017.

I view and frame Art as a social production and cultural storytelling. I strategically deploy objects via sculptural installations and stand alone video to make new narratives. Working across text, sculpture, performance, video, drawing, printmaking and textiles, I write to guide my narrative and object making. These texts are often rhythmical hyperrealist observations of the world I attempt to narrate, hinting at a future that has already taken place. Employing the use of titles in order to create micro narratives for my sculptural assemblages to operate within. My primary concern is how objects and people occupy architectural space and the built environment, and how objects have the potential to communicate cultural identity.
