Coming from a background within the arts, pyscho-social engagement and hospitality, I am a creative practitioner and mixed media artist. Concept-led into an exploration of authentic aesthetic and artistic expression, my work plays between multiple visual art mediums, such as textiles, sculpture, photography, written word, and installation. With research focusing on spaces, socially engaged art, and reflective identity exploration, my ideas play alongside collaged concepts of nostalgic narratives, ceramics, and cracked concrete.  Currently working within visual marketing, curation and as a Creative Lead of a South West wide touring exhibition, I explore social sculpture and creative collectives.
