she works in film, installation, text and performance to explore collective and inherited trauma; in particular, the latent ways we speak about this through dreaming, telepathic communion and secrets as an anti-colonial strategy inherent to us. her practice is led by semiotic and associative journeying, and a trust in the intuitive process.
she has shown work with Bluecoat, The Mosaic Rooms, Chapter Arts Centre, Artes Mundi, National Museum Wales, g39, Arcade/Campfa, MOSTYN, SHIFT, Gentle/Radical, the Eisteddfod and HOAX; and has been published with Zarf, Amberflora, Porridge and LUMIN.
she is also co-founder of LUMIN, a small press, arts collective, curatorial project and radio programme; creative associate with Ways of Working; and lead artist on Platfform with Peak Cymru.
she has appeared on BBC Radio Wales, Radio Cardiff and Radio Platfform; and was on the VAGW selection panel for the Government Art Collection 2020, Literature Wales Development Programme for Writers of Colour selection panel 2020, and is on the Arcade/Campfa board. she has done consultancy work for the National Museum Wales and the Arts Council Wales. she is the Visual Arts Group Wales Interlude (artists of Colour development programme) 2021 coordinator.
