Concerned with the creation of a fictional spatiality, my practice uses generative drawing processes and intuitive structural compositions to describe a new spatial experience, one that manifests itself through analogue drawings and physical 1:1 structures. Exploring notions of becoming and assemblage, my practice is one that is in a constant state of flux. A drawing language and a series of spatial objects that reconfigure themselves each time they are used, never forming a final outcome, or, never reaching a conclusive state of being. Through this work, I have exhibited widely across the South East of England in both group and solo shows, and I've created installations for a number of events, including the Ramsgate Arts Festival, the Cheriton Light Festival and for the Folkestone Triennial Fringe. Alongside this independent process, I like to pursue collaborative projects that operate between architecture and fine art, as well as regularly teaching and facilitating workshops that push the boundaries of design-thinking.   

As a champion of arts education, I am actively engaged in educational outreach and continue to facilitate workshops and events in schools and within the community. Currently I am an associate of Urban Room Folkestone, working with them to programme their ongoing engagement with Folkestone's urban environment and alongside this, I am a Sessional Lecturer of Design for Stage01 Architecture and Stage01 Interior Architecture & Design at the Canterbury School of Architecture, UCA, as well as the National Saturday Club Tutor at UCA Rochester.
