I am a multidisciplinary artist & educator, based in Boscombe, Dorset. My work negotiates the fertile margins between moving image, choreography, text-based work & sculptural assemblage. I consider my practice as an ‘intrecciare’ (Italian meaning to weave, braid or intertwine) of ideas, enquiries, references, stories & unearthed histories.  I am interested in bringing attention to the symbiotic relations & overlooked forces which circulate between bodies, objects, places, matter, minerals & other living organisms.

With poetic tendencies, my methodology includes fieldwork, interdisciplinary collaboration, score-writing, workshops & archival research. I often engage in acts of deep listening, drifting, embodied walking & careful noticing. Working with a site-specific approach, projects have responded to a multiplicity of places & contexts, including: an estuary biome, a fossilised blue whale jawbone, an archive collection, a lido relic & a heathland bog.
