I have been a practising performance artist since graduating in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College in 1989. During this time I have integrated dance and movement into my work gaining several commissions from Chisenhale Dance space including New Choreographers award in 1992, as well as curating and showing my work in a research project and a European conference there. Most recently, in 2007 I was given a residency at Chisenhale where I made a performance installation.
I was a member of an International performance Network for six years where I performed in Copenhagen, Lisbon, Nuremberg and Liverpool. I studied one year full time at the European dance development centre in the Netherlands in 1993.
Over the years I have collaborated with artists Tanya Syed, filmmaker, Felicity Croyden, artist and many others.
Since moving to Wales I have set up Shakeholes, which is an artists group for collaborating. In 2007 we made a performance on the Black mountain and performed in the local Miners theatre.
Most recently I was commissioned to make a performance installation called Conception Vessel, for the Herbert Gallery in Coventry as part of the Summer dancing festival.
I am currently completing my MA in Fine Art at Swansea Metropolitan University.
