My practice encompasses drawing, printmaking, animation and installation. It is informed by residencies and research within scientific institutions and engages with visualisation and mapping technologies. My recent residencies include Anatomy at King’s College London (2019-2021), Life Science at University of Dundee (2018/9), Applied Mathematics at University of Bristol (2019) and Neuroscience and Imaging Science at the University of Manchester (2016). I’m intrigued by what remains immeasurable, illusive and unseen, despite our increasing capacities to visualise and gather data about the world around us.

The process of drawing remains at the heart of my practice. A recent animation ‘in the same breath’ (2020) explores a new methodology of ‘data drawings’, which integrate creative coding with the hand drawn. I am currently experimenting with LIDAR scanning at Yorkshire Sculpture Park as part of a Liverpool Biennial, a-n and Open Culture bursary.
