    Biography

    My work has shown widely at exhibitions and screenings. In 2015 my collaborative video, One for Sorrow, was screened at Maternal Structures in Creative Work at London South Bank University where I also gave a conference presentation. In 2015 my video Punctures was shortlisted for The Birth Rites Collection Award and was screened at Project AfterBirth. In 2016 my work was screened at Brood Film Festival in Exeter and I became an invited associate artist at the Digital Institute for Early Parenthood. My video Nothing Gets Through was screened at Quickening at the Nightingale Cinema in Chicago in October 2017 and I co-curated Lass Struggle at FiLiA 2017 which was a screening and exhibition exploring feminism and class subjectivities. Nothing Gets Through, was shortlisted for the Birth Rites Collection Prize 2017 and was shown at screenings in Manchester and London. In 2018 I was invited to be an artist at Spilt Milk Gallery in Edinburgh. I have also been selected to be a Digital Artist in Residence in May 2018 at digitalartistresidency.org where I will be making new work about digital spaces titled: Imaginary Excursions in Digital Borderspace.
