I am a writer, artist and autodidact from the North-East of England. I make work in a variety of forms, predominately theatre but also poetry, arts journalism, prose, painting, artist books and moving image. Currently I am working on two projects which combine these different methods to make a hybrid text. Alongside my own creative practise I run writing workshops and an arts based support group for people experiencing mental illness.
My short film Womb was commissioned by Random Acts/True North/HOME. It has been showcased on Channel 4’s website here.
Previously I was commissioned to write Word Salad for Alphabetti Theatre as part of their The Rooms production. The production went on to win a Best New Writing Award from the North-East Theatre Guide. In 2015/16 I trained as a playwright with Graeae Theatre Company.
