I am a practising artist currently residing in Manchester. I work in a diverse range of media including Live Art, Installation, Sound and Fibre. I gained a first class degree at the University of Salford, BA Hons Visual Arts in 2009. My dissertation was held as an example of excellence.

I was sole curator and co-founder and director of Kraak Gallery in Central Manchester from October 2009 to May 2010. I curated, exhibited in and performed at Late Night Live Art at Kraak, at the end of 2009. I also curated and exhibited in the Lost Language show at Kraak Gallery, featuring experimental emerging artists which also included workshops and a talk. I participated in the first Junto: Mentor project (’09) in association with LADA.

I have recently performed at The Other Room poetry event and am about to be featured in their anthology. I work in collaboration with Jennifer McDonald in sound and live performance. We are also about to work on an installation and video piece together. We performed at Counting Backwards and at Bury Art Gallery as part of Artists’ Wakes.

I performed a live crochet at Mill 24, a video piece in Unsungfest at Contact Theatre and held a talk and performance at University of Huddersfield’s Sonic Arts Forum. Future projects include a performance with Jennifer McDonald at Free for Arts Festival.

I was in an improvised noise duo called Blood Moon with artist Graham Dunning until late 2010. We performed in a variety of locations including the Louise T Blouin Institute, Cafe Oto supporting Charles Haywood and at Islington Mill in Salford supporting Flower-Corsano Duo. We have also been featured artists on the ICA’s The Experiment.

I have also organised a  range of community projects which include: workshops and an exhibition with young people from Nacro as part of Shine Month for Tameside Council; a two day craft event for Ladyfest Manchester ’08; early projects with Artyarn including the New Islington Urban Folk Festival and a project for Oxfam to raise awareness about maternal mortalities worldwide.
