I love to reinterpret and respond to narratives, collections and sites and come up with creative solutions that not only transforms a venue but entertains, informs, challenges and captivates their visitors.

'The film is – quite frankly – stunning. You’ve not only captured the spirit of the brief, but have also created something that is hugely accessible, evocative, charming and beautiful. I can see our visitors being captivated and entertained hugely.' Simon Daykin, Director of Wells Maltings Trust
'Thank you so much for all your work. You’ve been a pleasure to work with and have taken our archive material to places it’s never been before!'
Ben Gilbert, Photography & Illustration Editor, Wellcome Collection
'A wonderful and eye-catching mashup showcasing the breadth and depth of objects and local history that can be seen in our displays in interesting and bizarre juxtapositions. The artwork has absolutely transformed the front of NLM'.

As an Artist and Creative Director, I bring excitement and a new perspective to stories, sites and collections. I work with Culture and Creative partners to create captivating audience experiences, engaging interpretations and imaginative programmes. My clients include National Trust, Wellcome Collection, Normanby Hall, Wells Maltings Trust, Ipswich and Colchester Museums, University College of London, Norwich University of the Arts and North Lincolnshire Museum.
Each project is approached and managed in a unique way, developing new and imaginative ideas and keeping my clients informed throughout the process, by discussing ideas, briefs, budgets and sharing mood boards, scripts, storyboards and mockups. My projects can include artist residencies, commissions and community projects that tell stories, inspire others and make memories, with the main focus of connecting with the audience and character of the space.
My process involves digital and analogue medias, layering a range of materials to create playful, engaging and sometimes provocative artwork, such as moving image, animation, augmented reality, illustration and design. My current interests are in creating a deeper audience experience and exploring new art forms including immersive, interactive, installation and performative art, which I am excited to apply to new projects.
Drawing on my interest in historical themes, beliefs and behaviours, my focal point is female identities, exploring how they are socially constructed and how history has shaped perspectives and perceptions. I am fascinated with invisibility, objectification, oppression, and othering and how these may affect the experience of being a woman in our world today.
My personal projects have showcased at The Courtauld Institute of Art, Montreal International Film Festival, The Guildhall Art Gallery, Old Truman Brewery and The Sphinx Fine Art Gallery. My film I Can See You was awarded Best Original Concept by Jane Austen International Film Festival and received two honourable mentions. My end of residency exhibition, That's Not My Name is now showing at Normanby Hall, Lincolnshire. I am currently an artist in resident at Time and Tide Museum, Great Yarmouth.
'Her style, theatrical bias, historical awareness and educational value make her work extremely unique and eye-catching'.
