About me

I am a multidisciplinary artist, working primarily in paint, ceramics, and textiles. My artworks focus upon issues surrounding feminism, domesticity, the male gaze, and the hurtful representation of women in film and media. Through this my artworks explore sexuality, autonomy and confronts taboos and political issues surrounding these concepts.

My art is inspired by the feminist artists of the past, and I am always exploring new ways of expressing these concepts in contemporary ways.

I have a Distinction Foundation Diploma in Fine Art from Runshaw College and I am starting the Fine Art Masters at UCLan in September. My work has also recently been published in a-n’s Degree Shows Guide.

My work concerns the sexual objectification and fetishisation of women. These clay pieces explore this by focusing on the fragmented body parts that women are reduced to under the male gaze, segmented to please male desire and becoming ornaments to be admired and is seemingly something that is out of their control under our current society. By segmenting the female figure in my works in a crude and harsh manner I am pushing the viewer to adapt the male gaze, focusing purely on socially desirable body parts and shapes.
