I am a photographer, writer and radio show host whose photography includes portraiture and still life. The aim of my work is to be clear, compassionate and honest. I am also interested in opening new dialogues about mental health and chronic invisible illness, living with both conditions myself. I host a monthly radio show ‘The Two of Us’ on Reel Rebels Radio where I talk to writers and artists about their work and how it relates to mental health and emotional well-being.

I have been Artist-in-Residence at Culpeper Community Garden, Islington and my work has been exhibited at Ovalhouse, The Albany, Lewisham Art House, The Nunnery Gallery (as part of the Shape Open 2013), The Pie Factory, Margate and Free Space Project, Kentish Town.

Please subscribe to my newsletter for regular updates about my projects, interviews with fellow writers and artists and even the occasional recipe.
