bio 

 

After 6 years working in the London film industry on ads and promos to support my art practice I left to spend 6 years in NYC working in museums and galleries. I returned three years ago and I’m now applying the skills I’ve learnt in both cities to Production Design and the Art Department. My skill set is developed from sculpture, curating and art department assisting so it includes an instinctive relationship to objects within a variety of environments. 

 

I have exhibited internationally in galleries and museums including The Saatchi Gallery in London and The Hermitage in St. Petersburg and have been represented by commercial galleries in London and New York. While working for museums such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York and being a studio assistant for artists including Jennifer Bartlett and Urs Fischer I learnt a broad set of practical and technical skills. In 2013 I won two awards for best experimental feature for my short fictional documentary C.A.G.E.
