I identify as a working class artist, and I work with collage as I want my practice to be environmentally sustainable and collage is an art form with recycling and repurposing at its core. I am interested in climate change and am currently showing work at Health and the Climate and Ecological Emergency Exhibition in UCLH. I am currently researching discard studies which encompasses theories regarding pollution, waste colonialism and how we discard and what we discard.

I am currently installing collage into discarded objects and window pane envelopes. The envelopes are collected from my workplace, a hostel, and I also get envelopes donated to me as well. I call the project FEARMAIL. I am developing a new project called The Discarded Pantry and collecting vintage packaging and installing collages inside them. I am interested in telling stories about climate change and the choices we can make, and the consequences of not changing our relationship to the natural world.
