I am an artist and writer based in Newcastle upon Tyne working across moving image, photography, installation and live performance.
I am a studio holder with The NewBridge Project and a current member of the LUX Tyneside Critical Forum.
In 2018 I co-edited Eros in Blue with Sophie Soobramanien, a collection of new writing from the Northeast on the ‘expanded erotic’ and love as art practice – printed in collaboration with Foundation Press in Sunderland.
