Bio:

I am an artist and maker based in Whitechapel, London. I graduated from Kingston University in 2016. My work is process-based and hands-on. I am drawn to traditional crafts and work in a range of media including printmaking, cut out, pottery and installation.

My work is inspired by the past, childhood and the natural word, held together with subtle threads of autobiography. Through visual storytelling, I hope to combine these elements to offer a different way of seeing – to make people to stop and notice the small things.

I like to work collaboratively and believe in the importance of both creativity and community. This is why I work as a Print Making Teaching Assistant at Crisis, a Creative Befriender with Westminster Arts and run my own art workshops.
