I work as an artist and printmaker. I am currently a student of MA Print at the RCA, I will graduate in 2022. In 2021 I launched Lutra, a not-for-profit print and drawing studio in East Leeds.

Working in drawing, print, collage, sound and sculpture, my work examines human behaviour and the subconscious. I like to juxtapose the psychological progress or behaviour of the individual with the development of society, or humanity, as a whole

Informed by anthropological and scientific reading, I am playful with the theories and language I borrow; often creating works that amalgamate ideas or imagery across centuries, cultures and areas of study. My work reflects my keen interest in the historical relationship between art and nonsense, absurdity and humour, to question the establishment and societal norms

I graduated from Leeds College of Art in 2009. I have been a studio holder and am currently an artist member at Serf (Leeds)

I am an experienced instructor, technician and lecturer in Printmaking having worked at Leeds Arts University supporting the Foundation course and other FE courses, and Leeds Beckett University supporting BA, MA and PhD students

I have delivered freelance workshops and participatory projects with museums, galleries and project spaces over a number of years
