Born in Edinburgh and based in Cardiff.
My work has an autobiographical core. I use texts, performance, still and moving imagery to create work that links my own story to wider cultural histories. I want to understand and communicate my experience. I consider how domestic, social, political and popular cultural aspects of our environment interact to impact our persona, our emotions, our psychologies and our sense of place in the world.
My approach is rhythmic, I talk about patterns, habits, cycles. Time passes and loops back round again. Recurring themes and motifs include wallpaper, hair, rehearsals and putting on an act. I share the limelight with popular cultural icons and sometimes we stand in for each other.
Moving image is increasingly central to my practice. While previously film was a player in my performances, now the film is the performance.
