I started my photographic career as a photographer’s assistant to the commercial and advertising sector, working in studios in Bristol and London, however I soon realised that my passions lay with socially engaged projects of a documentary nature.

I went on to gain a Masters degree in Documentary Photography (MFA Newport, Wales 2009) whilst working with NGOs and charities to deliver engaging youth programmes, using photography as a tool for self-expression (KWMC, Bristol).

My editorial work has been published in the British Journal of Photography, The Times, The FT Weekend Magazine and The Guardian. I have exhibited work in several group shows including; The AOP Gallery (2008), FotoGallery (2009), Brighton Photography Biennial (2014), Peer Gallery (2015) and Spike Island (2012). I continue to make independent work and publications as well as taking part in group exhibitions including recent shows at The Glasgow Women’s Library and The Glasgow School of Art (2017).

I currently live in Glasgow, balancing a freelance photographic practice with my role as a tutor in the HE sector.  I use photography primarily as a research tool to enquire into a broad range of interests that are ever evolving and currently include; British social history, protest, housing, and re-presenting the contributions of working class women.

I was recently awarded a distinction in the Masters of Research in Creative Practices from The Glasgow School of Art (2017).
