Hello. I make things to look at.

NPA Lab with Cai Bellis here

Interview with Stacie McCormick @ Unit1 Gallery here


I'm working with a new art fund called Artcry: providing funding for urgent political work with a fast response time on applications. Please check out the site here

I work primarily in paint and collage. My work deals with themes of commercialism in relation to the self. In particular, how we cope with a constant bombardment of visual information, ways we use social media to communicate, and the notion of privacy as a commodity. Many of my works use images stolen from or inspired by strangers' Instagram profiles. 

In 2017 graduated from an MA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, London.

In 2018 I completed a year long residency at the Florence Trust, and in 2019 was part of Plop residency

I'm currently at Koppel Hive, London. Hit me up if you want to come by the studio
