I’m a multidisciplinary artist, born and based in Manchester.

My practice explores the fascination I have with energy; from the physical, emotional to the metaphysical. This interest comes from the stance of a disabled person living with an energy limiting illness which leaves me mainly housebound. Forced to spend most of my time in solitude, due to symptoms, and removed from the intensity of modern urban life, this allows me to connect to a different time, space and rhythm from the outside world.

The pieces capture the marks of ephemeral entities, energies and the otherworldly. The different styles produced are led by the various materials used, however each one has a distinctive lightness and flow. The works are often layered and intricate but always pulling from intuition and the unseen. My preferred method is automatism, the same process loved by the spiritualists and surrealists. Using different esoteric practices in my daily life and during the art making process, as I work ethereal marks are made.

Many artists intrigue me; Leonara Carrington, Ithell Colquhoun, Guo Fengyi, Madge Gill, Georgiana Houghton, Wangechi Mutu, Christine Selafosha, and Remedios Varo are among the most captivating.

Due to my lived experience as a disabled woman and self-taught artist, I feel compelled to challenge the deeply ingrained ableism within the art world that stubbornly persists. This has created another facet of artistic interest in producing socially driven work. This involves a research-led practice with disabled, deaf, visually impaired and neurodivergent creatives to show institutions and curators new ways of embedding access at the inception of creation.

Since becoming a working artist in 2021, my work has been featured in exhibitions at fairs and museums, such as Halle Saint Pierre, Paris and the Outsider Art Fair, NYC. Works are held in public and private collections internationally, including The College of Psychic Studies, London.
