About me

Within my practice I examine notions of the everyday, explicitly the passing of time. I contemplate neurodiversity and how individuals respond to ever-changing conditions. I use abstract imagery as a language to show how our visual senses conjure specific reactions to what is happening around us.

Being a student at UCLan has been significant in the growth of both my personal and professional development. Throughout my fine art degree I have had the privilege of being able exhibit in the Hanover Gallery and assist with exhibitions for established artists.

I have fulfilled the role of student well-being ambassador offering support to other students with their university experience. Additionally, I have worked in the position of student assistant with the National Saturday Club, this is an art and design based session, which is held at the university.
In this role I engage and support young people aged 13-16 in a creative capacity.

My work is a response to everything that surrounds me, everywhere holds an opportunity. I take satisfaction in discovering the beauty in monotony, whether it be a new form or feeling of insight. These instances allow a sense of tranquillity or calm in and amongst the everyday. Enamoured by the presence of light, how it illustrates various feelings and perhaps offers a sculptural form to what is not of any physicality. Light harnesses the ability to alter the ambiance of the space. I intend to ignite curiosity with ambiguous imagery in depicting how light is a representation of time passed.
