My art practice is research led and often use objects, materials and process to explore the documentation of the human condition in material culture and place. I playfully appropriate the language and practice of social sciences and museum studies in order to create sculpture, installation and public activity which explore the function of collection and heritage.

I work from, and co-direct Paradise Works, Salford, and teach Critical & Contextual Studies at Salford University School of Arts & Media. In 2016 I coordinated and curated the Place + Production programme for Rogue Artists’ Studios which marked the group’s final year at Crusader Mill.

I am currently artist in residence at Quarry Bank Mill, Cheshire, and have been commissioned by Trust New Art to produce new site-responsive work for the gardens launching September 2017. I have recently been awarded a Professional Development Bursary by a-n to complete a period of research and development to further my knowledge of open access and large scale art production facilities.
