My work is usually for non-theatre contexts and foregrounds ideas about relationship, agency and attention, exploring embodied interactivity and game-playing.

Alongside my work I help other artists with their projects in and out of the studio. This can mean:
-being an outside-eye
-project development, planning and management
-support in developing educational content
-grant-writing (specifically Arts Council England project grants- under 15K).
I currently work with Tate n Lyle, Christopher Matthews, Darcy Wallace & Fernanda Muñoz-Newsome. I have recently worked with Simona Scotto and Rachel Gildea. I usually work with 1-2 artists at a time but it depends on what the project needs. Send me a message to know more.

I create bespoke works and interventions for specific situations and briefs, drawing together a team of international collaborators. I have recently completed projects for Louisa Guinness Gallery with the jewellery of Alexander Calder at an event at the Natural History Museum London (October 2016) and with Maison Boghossian for NOMAD Monaco (April 2017).
