This work is a poetry installation that simultaneously resists articulation while searching for it. It mixes my own childhood memories with my daily interactions and experiences here in London – becoming a process of me coming to terms with the inescapable impact that where you are born affects the entire path of your life. It also touches on the complete unreliability of memory, which exists in a maelstrom as opposed to points on a clear linear path.

Visual Communication: Illustration
I am a poet, writer, installation artist and illustrator, who specialises in work that deals with collective memory and autobiography.
I’m interested in using the poetry (whether it's textual or visual) as a form of resistance – a way of confirming the importance of the personal and the inner self in a world that often puts little value on either. The things we keep closest to us are often the things we feel least allowed to express, and there is peace to be found in their release.
Throughout my MA here at the Royal College of Art I’ve been specifically investigating the form of the book; exploring both how books can exist within a gallery space, and how they can be fully translated into installations.
This has resulted in a series of site specific installations inspired by and existing in tandem to a publication, and also an on-going public poetry project.
