I am an artist and educator based in South London.  I am currently most interested in how stories and rituals associated with our personal surroundings might be being re-interpreted within the virtual world. The ambiguous spaces in my work depict the tension between sanctuary and territory; echo chambers and wider networks. I am inspired by the city in which I live and my domestic surroundings. I am interested in ‘in-between’ places, portals or thresholds and doorways, curtains and staves are common motifs in my current work.  They could  be read as both oppressive barriers and routes onwards forming an endless maze.
