About

My practice encompasses drawing, printmaking, animation and  installation. It is informed by residencies and research within scientific institutions and regularly engages with visualisation and mapping technologies. My recent residencies include Anatomy at King’s College London (2019-2020), 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. I am currently experimenting with ‘data drawings’, which integrate creative coding with the hand drawn.
