Artist Statement

I am an artist moving image practitioner and researcher, based in Coventry and London. The domestic space, work, mental health and the body are key themes within my practice. Research areas of interest include artists' moving image distribution, brutalist architecture, feminist film theory, identity politics and artists' moving image from the 70s and 80s. I am continuing a project on the feminist film distributor Circles (now Cinenova) using my dissertation as a basis for more practice based outcomes. My practice is currently executed across various related media used by Cinenova artist filmmakers including but not exclusively Super-8, tape-slide and performance. I am also exploring the thematic concerns of some Cinenova filmmakers such as women’s health, mental health, work and formalism. Since 2018 I have been experimenting with newer media such as gifs and 360 degree video. I am currently a member of Vivid Project's Black Hole Club for artist development. In 2008, I graduated from Middlesex University with First Class BA Hons degree in Fine Art and in 2013 I graduated with a Merit from the MRes Art: Moving Image course at Central Saint Martins in conjunction with LUX.
