I create digital compilations, analogue displays and sculpture to make uncanny connections between researched subject matter.
My digital compilations include sound and video footage. They also feature documented sculptures and digitised photographic slides. I assemble my sculptures from found as well as functional objects, and often show them physically.

In June 2015 I made a performance called blue farm, roundhouse, hlâw at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. I developed the performance during a Research Residency in Art Writing. Maria Fusco, then reader at Edinburgh College of Art, helped support the residency.
I produced an exhibition in Leeds called Collider, in 2013. The exhibition took place at Mexico Project Space following a residency organised by Embassy Gallery.
In October 2013 I produced a show called Epigone at Basement Arts Project in Leeds. The exhibition’s title refers to the definition of ‘epigone’ (an imitator of someone, especially an artist or philosopher).
A collective of artists who were based in Edinburgh during 2012 and 2013.
I took part in this group show in a disused train station in Newhaven, Edinburgh. The exhibition was curated by Holly Knox Yeoman. I exhibited at the same time as artists Claudia De La Pena and Dickie Webb. Additionally, a responsive text was written by Kate Grenyer.
