About

 

I am an interdisciplinary visual artist from the UK with BA (Hons) and MA degrees in Contemporary Creative Practice and Fine Art. Also former assistant to artist and Andy Warhol Superstar, Ultra Violet. 

My practice is often formed from narratives of the body within social, cultural, political and personal frameworks. I work primarily, but not exclusively, with mixed media and lens-based media.

Historically, my work has extended to covert, live 'non-performances' that lay somewhere between performance art, activism and street art. Documentation of these interventions are not included on this website.
