Freelance artist, curator and events organiser.
I decided to return to education after having my family, to accomplish a 1:1 BA (Hon) in contemporary Fine Art at UCA, then a Master of letters in Fine Art at Glasgow School of Art.
My art and curatorial practice currently explores the history and ruins of industry and culture through the research of landscape, objects, and experiences via the female connections to these. Informed by a variety of cultural and critical issues around ecofeminism which is explored through painting, drawing and the installation of objects. Using an alchemy of materials to create narratives and environments that questions our understanding of these issues. When I was very young, my Nan used to live in front of the old cotton mills in Lancashire, we would be constantly exploring in these fascinating, huge buildings and derelict towers with hundreds of small windows full of old machinery, bird’s nests and detritus, this type of other worldly space still attracts me now, these spaces have traces of life and death, and traces of memory that is explored in my work.
