    Biography

    I use photography and video . I make and construct themes using traditional and digital work  the field works in the landscape are walking ethnographic journeys, I like to explore these during research and developing new works.

    I'm a graduate of University of Westminster in Photography, I have exhibited nationally and internationally. During January 2018 I completed a site residency researching histories of a woman discovered from Roman time, the work shares stories from this womans past, her heritage, migration, our universal connections to these presentations and traces in the landscape.

    This project now forms part of an Arts Council Funded project touring exhibition Constructed Geographies.
