Artist, Poet, Producer & Curator
Romford, UK/Rotterdam, NL
I am an artist, poet and curator who grew up in Romford, though is currently based between the UK and Netherlands. I studied Fine Art BA at Nottingham Trent University and MFA at Piet Zwart Institute.
I am a socially engaged artist using performance, video and sculpture that extends beyond the gallery - currently focusing on ideas of identity, belonging and ‘home’. Drawing from hidden stories and histories, depicting personal and societal struggles of transformation, that show another 'present' is possible.
I have exhibited internationally and established residencies/public arts projects across the UK, such as; Boijmans, Het Nieuwe Instituut Glasgow international Arts Festival, Life Rotterdam, Locatie Z, La La Vallée, Architecture Fringe Scotland, Glasgow Open House Festival, SPACE London, The Number Shop, Galerie Visualise, Fjuk Arts Centre, Generator, Primary.
I worked for a major political campaigns organisation as a web designer and developer in London and in 2016 I was commissioned to develop a digital education scheme across 7 Libraries in Scotland. Since I have joined Studio Jeanneworks as Arts Producer, working on developing long term socially engaged artworks and exhibitions and also am a Associate Lecturer in Fine Art at Derby University, UK.
