I am a visual artist based in Swansea, UK. I work in a number of media including performance, video and painting. My practice explores belief in a variety of contexts, as well as examining representations of women and the implications of those.

My visual language reflects a fascination with iconographic traditions, drawing on Biblical imagery, mythologies, and contemporary culture. I use historic material as a lens to look at the present, and to invite viewers to consider the transcendental. 

My most recent work seeks to convey the often unspoken experience of infertility, siting the female body in gardens and greenhouses.
