Artist Statement:
I am a student based in Derbyshire and have recently completed GCSE Art. I am planning on taking double BTEC Art and Design at sixth form. I attended a screen-printing workshop through school which sparked an interest in printing and have attended a placement at @greendoorstudios to continue this interest. I’m also interested in other art mediums such as digital art, drawing and fashion design/textiles.

Workshops & Learning


Picnic with Wingshan Smith
Mansions of The Future
Wingshan Smith has reimagined her contribution to the Communal Lunches programme, creating Picnic, a new instructional video work which will be available online until 30 September 2020. Part tutorial, part ritual, this is a spell to welcome a little chaos. To find strength in disorder. To purge the unwanted. Perform this spell on a waning moon. A time to put something to rest. Welcome wildness this season.

Isolated Moments  – Market Garden
Fermynwoods Contemporary Art
During lockdown I have been restricted to walks in South East London, exploring and investigating, and documenting this on @Blak_Outside. The empty streets got me thinking about community and particularly how in these times, there is a stronger and more urgent need for community togetherness. Community spirit is being eroded, especially where I come from in Brixton, where gentrification projects are ripping the heart out of communities who have been there for generations. Whereas ‘before’ we were, in essence, already self isolating through being wrapped up in our own individual concerns, this national collective experience has provided the impetus we needed to reach out to our neighbours, either through needing help, or the offering of help.
