I am a fine artist, educator, performer and lecturer based at Primary, one of the most exciting artist-run spaces in the UK. In addition, I am an Associate Artist at Nottingham Contemporary, where I have specialized in working with people with dementia, Lead Tutor in Craft Art & Design for the WEA across the East Midlands, a visiting lecturer at various universities, co-artistic director of Dog's Daughter and Artistic Director of Nu-Urban Gardeners, a live art and creative landscape project, also based at.

My practice is concerned with exploring notions of context.
I do this using installation, assemblage, photography, live art/performance, walking, drawing and painting.
I am particularly interested in mapping and walking and am something of a Flâneur, a hopeful traveller,
for whom the journey is more important than the destination.
