ABOUT

I am an interdisciplinary practitioner exploring the role of art and artists in society. I use artistic thinking and processes to open up dialogues, often working collaboratively in a practice that sits at the intersection of art, society and health. 

Central to my practice is the theme of care and within this, a connection to the idea of place - considering the social, physical and emotional landscapes we inhabit.

My work includes artistic commissions, facilitation/education and arts project management.
