I trained as an Actor at East 15 Acting School in London almost 20 years ago. At this point on my creative journey I feel rich to have a body of work that bleeds across many creative disciplines making it both diverse and difficult to box.
I'm based in Scotland and fortunate to travel with my work taking me throughout the UK, Europe and NYC.
Depending on the project I will work as Lead Artist | Director | Designer | Deviser | Actor | Adviser | Performer...
The past six years I have fallen in love with experimenting in making work for audiences of one or micro in Denmark but also the UK. My practice in this area is called Human Specific and has been researched over time initially whilst collaborating with Cantabile 2 and now solo.
Being invited to talk much more lately about how I create my one on one works and about my process as an artist when devising new works has been very insightful.
My common thread within my practice is that I rarely approach making my own work with text as a starting point.
My inspiration is ignited mostly from human, visual and aural sources.
Working so closely with my audience seems to have fired a desire to make work that is often personal and rooted in a genuine curiosity in humanity. I am interested in human beings and our differences culturally yet our commonality as human beings.
Music and the space i create for are very important parts to my creative process and end works...
I have also spent the last 8 years researching memory | olfactory | immersive | site specific | responsive performance.
