An emerging multidisciplinary artivist my practice ranges from film making, to installation, to poetry and curation. Through community action and involvement, I use my skills to make art accessible for all and am interested in how the joy of creativity can have a positive social impact.

Graduating from Aberystwyth university in 2021 with a first-class BA in arts I have continued to explore and expand my practice. My priority centres on addressing issues relating to the climate and the current ecological crisis we are going through as a planet. I invest in deep research looking at regenerative projects as well as how these can benefit the communities who will be most impacted by climate change. Amplifying community voices to try and bring a greater connection to art for more people. To create a space where everyone feels welcome and included.

I aim to approach this with resilience and hope. Creating joyful connections so people can be inspired to make achievable changes in their own lives without feeling overwhelmed. To create spaces that open important dialogues around our feelings and impact on the world, to foster this deeper sense of connection to nature so we feel more motivated to try and protect it.
