I am a post-disciplinary artist based in the Midlands.

Through photography and moving image, installation and sculpture my work primarily seeks to address where truth sits in the boundary between science and science fiction in popular culture, the authority and veracity of the photographic image and the socio-political issues associated with dissemination of visual scientific information. 

Such topics as declassified Ministry of Defence reports concerning UFO sightings in the West-Midlands, Apollo 11 conspiracy theories, calibration of scientific documentary photography, and The New Space Race in the 21st century are themes that feature prominently within my practice.

In 2017 I was selected as an artist member for the first cycle of the Parallel Intersection programme where I exhibited at various locations across Europe, such as Lisbon, Lodz Fotofestiwal and OrganVida photo festival, and was awarded a group exhibition at Photo London 2019. 

I have been Artist in Residence at Wolverhampton University, undertaken multiples residencies at ArtCore, Derby, been awarded the NAWM micro-bursary award and have also taken part in the GRAIN/FORMAT East Meets West masterclass programme whereby participating members produced an exhibition at the Derby Photo Fringe alongside the FORMAT19 festival. 

In 2020 I was awarded the FORMAT20 John E Wright Portfolio Award, and shortlisted for the FORMAT21 festival programme.
