  • Biography
Her practice includes photography, casting, printmaking and sound work.
She explores unnoticed aspects of our environment – initially through the practice of urban walking, bringing the everyday and overlooked to the gallery. During Lockdown she broadened this investigation through cold water swimming, and in doing so she captures instances of the multisensory experience of being in the sea and in nature to explore and map our external and internal journeys and consider how this impacts overall wellbeing.
