About me

A multidisciplinary creative researcher based in London. My work exists at the intersection of Art, Design, Biology and Future Social Scenarios. Having recently graduated with an MA in Material Futures from Central Saint Martins, my current work is deeply rooted in narratives of the human condition. The passion i have for social justice, the exploration of the human body and the endless fascination that we as a species have with our own mortality is what fuels my practice. My projects explore themes not only of life and death, but also of the enormous impact we do and will continue to have on our environment in both the near and far future. Speculating somewhat extreme scenarios, not as a solution to future crises, but rather to spark conversation and shed light on the magnitude of those looming potential societal issues. My aim is to reposition the human back into the cycle from which we consume at an ever increasingly unsustainable rate and highlight the role we could play in ensuring a brighter and fairer future for humankind. With a background in Fine Art and a BA in Textile Design from Chelsea College of Art, my practical skill set is broad and varied. Drawing on this with my approach to making and visualising of research and concepts, my knowledge of materiality and aesthetics are bold and this base allows me to fully explore intriguing and sometimes disturbing subject matter.
