My work is a process of questioning and investigating ideas and materials. I work with a diverse range of processes, from sculpture and found objects to drawing and textiles. Touch is a key element in all my work – I play with materials that are tactile and spark my curiosity. The impulse to make comes first, meaning emerges through the creating process. My work is often autobiographical and explores shared histories of mental illness and its treatment, past and present.
My work has been exhibited regularly in group shows and I have also had a solo exhibition at Bethlem Gallery. I have completed two research projects there and at the Wellcome Collection, who have acquired two pieces of my work. I have published two pamphlets in collaboration with poets, Dogtown (2018) and ReCollections (2018). I run regular art workshops at Bethlem Gallery and elsewhere, I thrive on sharing skills and collaborating with others. Currently I am working on a commission with Kings College researchers exploring advance decisions about care for people with bipolar disorder.
