Photographer, occasional video maker, mother and compost enthusiast. Extremely fond of analogue film. Usually found in the studio or wandering around town looking at things in a weird way.

Born in 1988 in Rugby, UK, now based in Coventry in the West Midlands. I have been exploring photographic imagery, written word, collage, audio and video through diaristic practices from a very young age. I graduated with a First Class BA [Hons] in Photography from Coventry University in 2016 and have exhibited prints and moving image across the UK.

I carefully collect and archive observations of the places I find myself in and in doing so seek to playfully highlight, maintain, introduce or restore the inconspicuous beauty within moments occurring during day-to-day life. I am committed to using analogue methodology with a deep passion for the materiality of film and video tape. I love plant-life, taking unplanned walks, elusive moods of stillness and balance, topographical and urban themes and since my child was born in 2017, representations of mothers and maternal figures.

I am available for commissions in film or digital photography or moving image, print requests or any other enquiries. Get in touch: [email protected]

Between 2019 and 2021 I curated a collection of 35mm imagery depicting motherhood:

I am a member of Spilt Milk Gallery, Axisweb and Walkspace West Midlands.
