I am a multi-disciplinary artist based in Leeds, UK. I work primarily with drawing,
ceramics, textiles and publication design. I am interested in exploring
the dialogues formed between these elements.

Recently, my work has been concerned with themes of curation; personal and cultural value;
taste; preciousness; and the thresholds in-between these paradigms.
As a result of examining my own questionable taste, I wonder
how the images I create can exist somewhere
between ugliness and beauty.
