My practice integrates sculpture, painting, poetry, sound, digital media and performance to inform loose narratives; often centred around the body and everyday experiences. I am particularly interested in how processes of storytelling can occur in multiple dimensions. Spanning across contrasted disciplines, my works range from small-scale installations populated by real-life ‘characters’ to monumental paintings, soundscapes and other dreamlike forms.

More information regarding my works and any forthcomings can be found directly via my website here.

For this project, Gertrude Gibbons (Writing MA RCA 2019-2021) and I discussed the many forms of story-telling and word painting via music; how various techniques of the violin could be utilised to emphasise and complement ideas and objects exhibited in one given space. After direction, Gibbons performed and produced various violin sounds.These raw sounds were then incorporated into a soundtrack produced, designed and edited by Daryl Notridge (from the collective Motus Anima) and myself.
