Artist | Art Director | Videographer | Photographer
Visual Artist & Art Director living and working in Manchester, UK.
Multi-disciplinary, experimental visual artist specialising in creating aesthetically immersive video art. Characterised by bright mesmeric hues and melancholic figure expression, her work blurs the lines between memory and hallucination.
The cinematic landscape is one of the things at the forefront of her work, visually and thematically: Road trips, sexual encounters, death, escapism, dualism and visuals incorporate and intertwine lived experiences with filmic hyperrealities.
Tapped by THE DOUBLE NEGATIVE as 'one to watch' and one of the Northwest's top Fine Art graduates.
