I am an artist and curator, joining Kingston University as a lecturer in 2016. My work is largely performance-based, often taking the form of video, gifs, photography, book-making or installations. The politics of art distribution and ownership influences my production, and I often make work that is designed to be distributed cheaply or given away. I have exhibited in numerous group exhibitions at galleries including Charlie Smith, Five Years, WW Gallery, Transition and Gallery North.
I have been running the curatorial project Skelf since 2016- a virtual project space and platform for art writing on the website www.skelf.org.uk. This has been funded by the Arts Council since 2018 and currently runs a programme of quarterly group exhibitions with different curators with an accompanying podcast. In 2018 I was an associate artists on the Tate Teaching & Learning Summer School.

The virtual project space I run, Skelf has curated new exhibitions on a monthly basis since May 2016, working collaboratively with artists to re-imagine their work virtually using web coding and time-based media. Accompanying each exhibition is a new paired text from a contemporary writer or artist working with text- curated to provide a new perspective to each exhibition. In 2016, an article about Skelf was published on Curating the Contemporary, an online magazine of contempoary art and culture. https://curatingthecontemporary.org/2016/10/03/skelf/
For Exchange Project, my 2013 Curatorial Fellowship at APT Gallery, I worked with 33 artists and four writers to explore differing approaches to the exchange between artist and viewer- producing three group exhibitions, a publication and symposium, supported by the Arts Council.
My art work has been featured in the publication 'About Painting' by Transition Editions, in conjunction with Northumbria University. http://www.transitiongallery.co.uk/htmlpages/shop/books/about_painting.htm
