My current practice explores themes of documentary, narrative, relationships and social commentary. Through this I tend to work interdisciplinary across a variety of mediums. This project looks at the life of natural history collector Jeffrey Keiller, who was reported missing during the late 1970s. The work investigates elements and interests of his life, that tell his mysterious story through the form of a museum exhibition.

Within my work you can expect to see a small archive of objects, and installations. Through object I am exploring the narratives in which the objects hold, and how each object forms relationships with one another, and how they create relationships and narratives to us as the viewer. My work holds many concepts and ideas, and I want the viewer to create their own meanings and narratives within the work. I am often interested in history and our past, these objects I have collated and curated, form a collection, which tell a story of a man who has different and interesting relationships with his mother, father and the objects he collects.

Throughout my degree I have managed to work across a variety of fields within the creative and cultural industry, from design intern, to museum collections care. Gaining experience from a variety of roles, has allowed me to earn new skills and adapt to the challenges and tasks each role may encounter. Due to working in various sectors it means that I have a lot of knowledge, and can apply and adapt myself too whatever is required. I am a quick learner, and enjoy engaging and working with others, as well as working independently. My strengths include making, and using my hands to create, often applied through sculpture, craft, textiles, prop making, painting etc. I have a keen eye for detail and colour and I enjoy new challenges, and have a passion for learning new skills, crafts and techniques.
During my placement year I had the opportunity to take place in a collaborative projects at Basement Arts in Leeds, I was given an artist residency there, that lasted several months. Working independently as an artist showed me what working as a professional artists entails, more info can be found out about that project in the link.
