About the artist

She is part of FLINT; a collective of three female artists making audio-visual assemblages that involve sonic cut ups, sculpture and collage.
She has self-published 2 books, both launched with site-specific exhibitions.
She lectures at the London College of Fashion, University of the Arts, London on BA Fashion Styling and Production. She leads a Fashion Futures course at BSIX College in Hackney, London and she leads fashion and textile workshops with a refugee charity in London.
