I am an illustrator, curator, writer and arts facilitator. 

 

Through my illustration and writing practice

I explore traditional media and alternative publishing, with a focus on human perception, environmental themes, and viewer interaction.

As a curator my focus is on grass-roots and collaboration. I have curated and facilitated a range of projects including exhibitions, live events, workshops, publications and festivals. I have experience teaching and mentoring creatives, from 1-1 sessions, to running work placements for university students and emerging practitioners.
