I am currently undertaking my doctoral study full-time at Plymouth University under the supervision of Prof. Roberta Mock and Dr. Victor Ramirez Ladron De Guevara, having been awarded a fully funded studentship in order to undertake my research. 

My practice research explores the relationship between cloth and body in performance and visual arts. My work is crafted in response to my own personal-political and lived experiences, alongside my interest in feminism, affect, presence, intimacy, and suffering. I am a founding member of 'Church of Performance'; a Plymouth based arts collective ran in collaboration with Dagmar Schwitzgebel.

I grew up in Leicester and spent most of my life in this vibrant and diverse city. I completed my BA (hons) and MA degrees at Leicester's De Montfort University, and have worked for specialist teaching services within Leicestershire and Devonshire for many years.
