“My practice uses themes around the post-industrial landscape, where although much of my imagery comes from areas where my family are from in London, I also can’t help but link this back to my childhood growing up in the post-manufacturing landscape of the West Midlands. I work with areas that are undergoing so-called urban regeneration and am very interested in the relationship between former manufacturing sites, and then future states.”

Upcoming, she will be taking part in a group show at ldama Fabre Gallery, Bilbao; exhibiting at a show with Polly Tootle at Kestle Barton Gallery in Cornwall and taking part in another group show at Generator Projects in Dundee.
