I am an artist based in Peckham, South East London. 

My work involves the construction of tools and objects that tap into uncomfortable desires, fears and needs.


At a young age, I was encouraged to be self-reliant and adept at using manual tools to solve problems and keep myself distracted from unwanted thoughts. As an adult, and through my work as an educator, I’ve observed others in the process of making countless times and thought a lot about what making might mean. This has developed into a fascination with tools and with themes of function, labour and purpose. 


Recent ceramic sculptures have taken the form of everyday objects such as operating parts, electronic components or miscellaneous fixtures and fittings. The design details of such objects are observed and explored through drawing and model making before being playfully translated in clay.


I use unglazed coloured clay, combining methods of slab building, throwing and extrusion to create objects that reveal the tactile and fragile qualities of the medium. I assemble each piece from numerous clay elements, bringing them together to achieve a balance in form, interior/exterior volume, and surface texture.


I also work as a freelance Art educator and run workshops that advocate an exploratory, inventive and tactile approach to drawing and making. I have worked with schools across London, galleries and organisations including Bow Arts, Chisenhale Gallery, The Drawing Room, Whitechapel Gallery, South London Gallery, RIBA, Royal Society of Sculptors, London Drawing and Gerald Moore Gallery.
