I am a visual artist who works with a variety of different media and technologies, including photography, textiles, typography, digital art, and desktop publishing. My practice highlights and explores issues surrounding economic and social inequalities in working-class communities. Through my practice, I develop participatory strategies to enable individuals and groups to tell their stories through creative media.

My previous work has included a series of photo works and artist books depicting participants' responses to societal prejudices around unemployment. My experience includes working in community arts education and also on participatory arts projects with a range of stakeholders, including Leeds University Libraries Leeds City Council, East Street Arts and other local agencies to create visual outputs exploring identity

I am the co-founder of The Highrise Project CIC formed in response to the lived experience of living in social housing. Alongside Artist Louise Atkinson I use my artistic skills and interests to work with marginalised communities supporting them to tell their own stories through art and digital technology. I am currently studying for an M.A in Creative Practices at Leeds Arts University exploring the objects, place and space. As an artist within communities, I am explore how people react and respond to spaces, particularly through ad hoc urbanism and temporary interventions, responding to these through photography, experimental print, and bookbinding, thinking about the rhythms of space and how people use and respond to the spaces.
