As an MA Fine Art graduate from City & Guilds of London School of Art (2014 – 2016) I have been immersed in both a practical and academic environment which enabled me to articulate and analyse the driving force of my practice; it also provided the opportunity to research and contextualise my work in relation to contemporary and historical artists and practitioners.

My MA show culminated in an installation “The Myth of the White Collar Worker” – a reference to the aspirational life of my parents during the 1950’s – 1970’s and how this lead to ritualistic and repetitive habits and behaviour. I continue to develop work which references everyday domestic objects and commonplace routines, things which are in ‘plain sight’, and which can be seen as a metaphor for wider social and political issues.
