I am a Gateshead based artist, researcher, writer, and educator with a special interest in queer horror literature and cinema, non-human agency, video games, and Feminist Post-Structuralism. I am disabled and trans* non-binary, using they/they pronouns.
My art practice, writing, and research overlap considerably, as do the forms outputs take, crossing the lines of fiction, theory, lecture, publishing, radio play, performance, games, diagrams, paintings, and video.
I have produced art/writing/research on subjects including; the politics of organic growths in horror television, indie video games as Écriture Trans*féminine, living and loving as a mutant dog in the video game Resident Evil, inhuman queer love and mental illness in Wentworth Miller’s character in Buffy The Vampire Slayer, the film Ringu and Deleuze and Guattari’s concept of “Desiring Production”, rural antiquitarian horror in a planet-sized laboratory, and the queer potential of the Games Workshop universe.
From 2011-2016 I was a member of the drone metal ritual art collective AAS, producing installations and performances at sites including Supernormal Festival, Hackney Wicked Festival, Primary, Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, The Royal Geographical Society, Gallery North, and Flux Factory New York.
Projects I am currently engaged with include diagrams of corpse use in post-human society for CCA, Glasgow, and a frankly horrible artwork entitled “The Speculative Dismemberment of Leon Kennedy” for a publication being put out by Market Gallery, also in Glasgow.
I have worked as a visiting lecturer at Brighton University, School of The Damned, Northumbria University, Reading University, University of East London, and University of Northampton. I have also run sculpture pathways on Havering College, and Kensington and Chelsea College’s FE programmes.
Throughout 2021 I have been running artist workshops for institutions including Baltic in Gateshead, FACT, Liverpool, Wysing Arts Centre in Cambridge, and Southwark Park Gallery in London.
