I am a multi-disciplinary artist currently working in textiles and printmaking, exploring ideas around identity, memory, and loss. My latest work is a patchwork and printmaking project creating a quilt using textile with monoprinted images from photographs taken in childhood.
I also produce illustrated zines such as 'Birds of Shame' and make 'matchbook stories' of short, playful stories.
I am a photographer with an interest in old, analogue cameras, cyanotype and darkroom techniques.
I have a degree in Creative Expressive Therapies, and I work in community arts, arts and health, and arts engagement roles. I set up Keeping it Crafty in 2018, a community-focused creative arts organisation running regular creative socials and events, workshops, creative well-being sessions and community arts projects. I initiated the Grapevine Project in May 2020 and have co-ordinated the project with help from Luke Downing, who also participated in the project.
