Moving between painting, writing, and animation, my work explores spaces of future re-vision: from feminist collective action to speculative fiction and fan activity.  

Inspired by the desire for new stories and different forms of expression, my practice plays with the boundaries between forms; remixing elements from a range of sources (including theory and fandom, literature and life writing, activism and archival material) to generate imaginative and narrative resonances. Always seeking out new avenues for exploration, I often work in collaboration with other artists and in dialogue across disciplines.  

In 2022, I completed a PhD titled ‘Practicing the Difference: Reading Luce Irigaray with Feminist Science Fiction’, which considers feminist science fiction as a methodology to approach the speculative question of sexual difference raised by philosopher Luce Irigaray. In work informed by this research, I draw out qualities that constitute the genre of feminist SF—which I describe as thought experiment, worldbuilding, defamiliarization, fan activity, and sense of wonder—to think differently about sexual difference and how it resonates in feminist movement as both spectre and speculation.  

Current research thinks through childlessness as a condition in which futures might be forged in resistance to reproduction.  In this new work, experimentation with a hybrid genre of “speculative life writing” aims to make space for fertile counternarratives that re-vision childlessness, and to allow time to wonder how the future might be conceived otherwise.  

My work as an artist extends to writing, public programming and teaching. Since 2017 I have worked as an Associate Lecturer at the University of the Arts London and mentored artists on a range of alternative education programmes.
