Is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice centres around ideas concerning the body,
primarily the lived experience of her own medically altered body. She utilises personal
experience to develop a greater understanding of the body and stories it can tell. Within this
she explores how the act of making, through and with the body, can be used to create new
forms of bodily knowledge. Current research interests include investigating the
transformative process of light as a creative medium and how it can be used to emphasis
the lived, corporeal aspects of the body, as well as ideas around Performance-as-Static,
exploring the photographic image as a piece of performance - in itself, rather than just the
documentary by-product of a performative event.
