I originally trained as an actor, working predominantly in touring theatre and independent film and TV production (both in front of, and behind the camera).
Alongside Paul Morel and John Mowat, I am co-founder of Oddbodies, a critically acclaimed and award-winning Production Company that specialises in innovative and highly visual work that has been seen throughout the UK, Europe and the USA.
During a break from touring to start a family, I went back to studying, and in 2006, graduated from University College Falmouth with a 1st class BA(Hons) in Fine Art.
My visual arts practice covers drawing, sculpture, printmaking, painting, animation and filmmaking.
My work has been seen in numerous festivals and galleries including Animated Exeter Festival, 2 Short Nights Festival, Girls On Film Manchester, Barton Hill Animation Festival Bristol, The View From Here & D + C Free Cinema Devon. It's also been shown in the group shows Pause at the Phoenix Gallery Brighton, Syncapodia at the Barbican Arts Centre, Art, Ecology & the Environment at CCANW, The Duchy, Princetown and the pop-up gallery, Contemporary Art Tavistock.
