Artist Statement

I'm an artist-curator and am particularly interested in collaborative practices and what has been described as the post-internet.

I work closely with a wide range of practitioners from diverse fields. I have worked extensively with sound and online cultures and most recently have been working in strategic ways with various authorities.

I have worked extensively in artist-led spaces and institutions as well as 'non-art' spaces including mountain ranges, forests, places of worship and botanical gardens. 

In 2017 I founded Coventry Biennial where I am now artistic director, leading on fundraising, building our programmes and managing our team.
