My work is a reflection on dichotomies such as scientific knowledge versus intuitive insight, the notion of Nature as Other, alienation, the animal as symbol and metaphor, psychoanalysis, dreams and fairy tales. 

I have an experimental and versatile approach to my practice, I use performance, photography, sculptures and small scale installations.

I have exhibited extensively in the Uk and Europe since 2000 when I graduated from Central Saint martins college of Art.

I started to use performance since 2007 when I became part of an artist collective, check us out on www.Parlourcollective.co.uk -

we create performance events in spaces with interesting and obscure histories, they create a frame to our performance actions within a contemporary art language.
