Bio

I am a visual artist, writer, film-maker, and performer interested in non-consensual reality, outsidership, empathy, authenticity and absurdity.Themes in my practice are shedding skins and labels to see the heart behind things; challenging the concept and value of normality; making ordinary life extraordinary; flight; finding light in dark places, and insisting dreams have more substance and essence than average reality.I have been labelled ‘mad’ by society.
