About me
b. 1997 in London. I'm a multimedia artist, making work at the intersection of site-specific installation, curation, research-creation and the expanded field of drawing. I graduated from Winchester School of Art in 2020, with First Class Honours and an unpublished screenplay entitled 'Just 3 Boys in Kimonos'. Currently exhibiting at Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth.
