☟Artist Bio☟


I am a British artist whose work questions the impact of socio-political conditions on ecosystems, ultimately questioning what it means to be human in a time of profound environmental change.

Treading a precarious ground between science-fiction and science-fact (and the muddy sludge in between), my works frequently weave contemporary folkloric stories from popular science origins. In these tales you may encounter resurrected extinct species, non-humans cast as leading protagonists, or perhaps a singing tardigrade goddess.

Alongside my individual practice I also work collaboratively as part of duo ZOOX, and founded The New Flesh, a residency program for early career artists working with moving image and costume.

I am currently studying an MA in Artistic Research at the Royal Academy of Art, The Netherlands. The final year of my degree is generously supported by the Leverhulme Foundation.
