Currently working in a variety of media and forms, practice is not limited to one style or method, allowing the freedom to draw from a variety of influences and to respond to changing situations.
Between 2002-16, worked in collaboration as “Yoke and Zoom” an artist-led duo/family, whose work combined universal concerns with domestic private moments and relationships, receiving various awards to develop projects both in and out of the gallery environment. Yoke and Zoom’s practice involved instigating collaborations, and making interventions into multiple public spaces both in the urban and rural context, encouraging communication between people and questioning the politics of art production in the public and private realms. Often context specific, artworks involve distribution, re-appropriation of everyday objects, problem solving, sharing, more recently encorporating painting and drawing.
Recent: Between 2016-18 produced a series of performatively activated sculptures exploring actions generated through Post Collaborative Practice, Mediation and Conflict Resolution, available for perfuming on negotiation with the artist. 2019-20: Began an ongoing series of A4 drawings harvested from stock images and shown in the UK and Cuba. (2019-20)

Practice involves varied collaborations, investigating the politics of art production in the public and private realms, most recently involving post-participatory and meta participatory methods, painting and drawing.
