The physical world we inhabit and our personal, internal landscapes are intrinsically linked. Both are in need of advocates for compassion, solidarity and mutual aid.
I am a visual artist specialising in social practice and publishing. I produce work collectively, placing collaboration at the conceptual and visual heart of each project.
In programme development and management I interweave methods that explore the power of publishing, creating works that reflect the experience of those involved and speak to future audiences.
I work across different disciplines, making objects, books, photographs and designing frameworks through which others can engage with my making practice. I often pair words and sculptures with photographs, creating narratives through the configuration of sequences and series.
My aim is to learn ways that my artistic work can help create the world I want to live in. I am a strong advocate for the Slow and Open Source movements, and I publish resources under an open source licence as part of my practice.

Art is part of being human. It is for everyone. It can be used to inspire and implement positive action for ourselves, for others and for the planet.
