About

 

I am an interdisciplinary artist from the UK with degrees in Contemporary Creative Practice, Film & Video Production, and a Masters degree in Contemporary Fine Art Practice. I worked in New York City over several years as artist assistant to Andy Warhol Superstar, Ultra Violet.

My practice is usually formed from narratives of the body within social, cultural, political, psychological and personal frameworks.  I work primarily, but not exclusively, with mixed media and lens-based media such as digital video, light projection and photography; I’m much more interested in process rather than the end ‘artefact’. Historically, my practice has extended to covert, live 'non-performances' that lay somewhere between performance art and political street art. These happenings were documented then (anonymously) re-presented using installation, print and digital media. Documentation of these happenings are not included on this website.

My first international exhibition was in a group show at the Chelsea Hotel in New York City hosted by punk legend Jayne County. I have also had work exhibited in Tate Modern and Tate Britain, UK.
