I am an artist based in Leeds, creating sculpture from discarded and recycled furniture. Recent graduate of the University of Leeds.

My practice aims to highlight the intrinsic nature of the chair in everyday life. This exploration often leads to uncanny transformations, prompting the viewer to challenge whether or not they should sit down or purely observe. Further dissections of the chair led to comparisons to human anatomy. Consequently, much of my practice focuses on anthromorphisms and creating bug-like creatures from discarded chairs, rescuing them so that they are now celebrating their renewed existence within our world.
