About me
I am a London-based bilingual immersive installation artist with varied experience working in the creative industries. I'm particularly passionate about heritage preservation and education access which I promote through my artwork, employment and research. I have taught and curated learning at the Saatchi Gallery, Cygnets School of Art and Kingston University. Additionally, I organised various large scale events with Cass Art, Troubadour London, RHACC and the Taj. Furthermore, I worked on art installation with Auto Italia, Bargehouse OXO Tower and Cass Art as well as Beyond Projects (Punchdrunk and UNKL).
