Wide awake and jolly as fuck.

To be heard is an amazing thing.

Human beings fascinate me and I believe that conversation is one of the most potent forms of communication. Building upon previous constructed conversations, I created a space in the gallery exploring the positive attributes that accompany mental health.

There are many people working in the arts who suffer with their mental health. I hoped that by celebrating their positive attributes such as creativity, humour and divergent thinking, this work would help to destigmatise the taboo.

  • I am a multidisciplinary designer and art director based in London. My practice uses a diverse range of media including film, graphic design and immersive installations to communicate topics from the personal to the universal. I have produced design work for many clients across the arts, education and charity sector. My work has been featured in Design Week, Sky News, Forbes, The Evening Standard and Science. I have also exhibited internationally including showcasing design work at Tate in London and Times Square in New York. Alongside my design practice, I have lectured at the University of Southampton, Dulwich College, University of Bedfordshire and CARIS Summer School.
