I moved from my hometown in London to Hull in 2012, and have felt part of this welcoming city ever since.
I have studied the visual arts at various establishments, including University of the Arts London (Camberwell) Middlesex University and Hull School of Art and Design, where I graduated with a 1:1 in Fine Art in 2018.
I currently balance my freelance practice - mainly consisting of commissions, self-initiated project work and running The Critical Fish alongside my making practice - with a 'regular day job' (which have mostly been within the health and social care sector).
I am currently an educator, facilitator and programmer within my local NHS Recovery College, and have gained a reputation as ‘the arty person’ within the Trust. I weave in my love of arts at every opportunity, as I understand first hand the impact the arts can have on health and community.
I’m also a quiet but passionate activist, campaigning for environmental justice, disability rights/accessibility and socio-economic arts inclusion through my work, my practice and in life.
