My current studio project is The Stinging Nettle Atlas, written and visual maps that tell tales of rural childhood with my 5 sisters and explore themes of girlhood, freedom, and resilience.

In my participatory work I am interested in developing flexible and responsive processes that allow us to think imaginatively with ourselves, and each other. I use creative practice to support people who find themselves on the margins to express their personal perspectives as part of a shared purpose.

I write, and make paintings, books, maps, and animations revolving around ideas of connection and belonging. I often collaborate, seeing my work in a community of practice that extends across disciplines.
