I believe in using art as a tool to foster community, and as a means for exploring the world around us.
Working in multiple fields, I make illustrations, designs, and printed work, either for clients or self directed projects. Whether the outcome will be a screen print or not, I’ve learnt that using the limitations of the medium can help me focus.
In Spring 2018 I initiated a group called Print Power. We were awarded an artist residency, and for our first project together we choose to host free workshops to anyone affected by sexual assault. I saw firsthand how a creative medium could be used as a tool to bond and strengthen a group of people, regardless of whether they had an artistic interest or not. Print Power have a grant pending for a project in 2019, fingers crossed!
My friend, Lizzie Lock and I co-founded a brand together in 2015 called Chhipa. We design clothing and accessories, made in a Rajasthani community committed to sustaining the ancient craft of block printing. For each collection we travel to India to work alongside the master craftsmen to produce prototypes and to initiate production. We also curated a pop-up store together to celebrate beautiful craftsmanship called The Makers Shop.
As a teaching artist, I’ve provided workshop experiences for the Arts Fund, Girls Rock, and Patagonia. I taught weekly beginner workshops for four years for Print Club London, as well as leading tailored workshops and live printing sessions for high profile clients in many different formats; sometimes out on the street, occasionally in dark bars, and once in the middle of a field at a festival.
