About my artwork
Her practice involves fictional narratives, drawing; found images, a play on text through direct animation. She is interested in correspondence, communication, connectivity and collaboration and this is extended through her international curatorial projects. She travels, gets lost and collects themes of political responses and reactions, cultural and language boundaries, human interaction; bringing different fragments of cultures into one space.

As an artist she has exhibited in London, The Library Artspace, Victoria, Australia, The Crafts Fair in San Francisco, The Roaming Biennial in Tehran and the Other Asia’s exhibition ‘ReDo Pakistan’ in Karachi, Pakistan. To date she has independently curated fourteen shows. ‘Subversive Correspondence’ in London and Bristol and ‘Dialogues: A Fake Romance?’ in Swansea. Internationally, ‘A State of Un-Play’ at Atelier 35 in Romania, ‘Engagement and Entrapment’ in Israel and Palestine, Cyprus and South Korea. ‘Loss & Lucidity’ in California and Lisbon, which was her largest show featuring 58 international artists.

She is currently working with promoting and advocating the importance of creative thinking and making in different sectors outside of art. She has given presentations and workshops at the Institute of Mental Health, Nottingham University, Southwark Cathedral, KPMG, Archaeology groups (DNMGS), Haringey Council (business & Art) and schools and communities centres (well-being, domestic violence issues, race and disability). She currently works at Loughborough University and Open College of the Arts (University of the Creative Arts)
