An overarching theme of my work is that of the outsider & their story, particularly regarding the LGBTQ+ experience, stories that have been omitted through archival silence. I actively encourage dialogues with my audiences and participants, aiming to create a safe space to share thoughts and experiences. The results give very evocative and authentic glimpses into the everyday.

To date the purpose of my work has been to address issues that are often considered as mundane or commonplace. I have a particular idiosyncratic, eccentric sensibility, placing myself within the frame allowing me to take clear ownership over the content. With great attention to detail, I work with a visual aesthetic which mixes minimalism with charity shop kitsch. My work incorporates a strong visual language employing video projection, stylized movement, sound, and text. I have shown work in a variety of venues including Bristol Old Vic, Arnolfini (Bristol), Oval House, Chapter Arts Centre, Battersea Arts Centre, Basement Brighton, Colchester Arts Centre Exeter Phoenix and within Festivals including National Review of Live Art, Inbetween Time, National Trust and White Nights
