I am compelled to capture the  portraits of people who desire  transformation, I have been there  too. I seek narratives of survival and  resilience. Exploring the stories of  those who grow. Challenging perceptions on gender  construction and performance is important to me and so is identifying vulnerability because I find a tender beauty there. A portrait should reach beyond the surface to be poignant. 

My approach is research based and I enjoy immersing myself on extended projects. I work with both digital and film cameras and invite participants to write their stories down and collaborate upon how they are represented. 

I won the BJP Portrait of Britain 2019. My current portrait work is also Arts Council funded and explores domestic violence for the national charity SafeLives where I  am artist in residence 2021. I am drawn to those who build a new life and embrace change. I work commercially for companies  including the NHS who feel art can provoke new thinking and engage people in a different conversation. Available for commissions.
