I am a multi-disciplinary artist, facilitator and researcher who explores perceptions of reality and neuro-diversity, focusing on neurodivergence and creativity. I create participatory works and opportunities for co-authorship and collaboration. My approach involves dialogue, practice-based explorations and embodied enquiry – utilising qualitative and quantitative research methods informed by a psychology framework. My practice incorporates performance, installation, moving image, photography and choreographic practice.
I am currently Artist Investigator at Wellcome Collection’s Reading Room, Artist in Residence and Honorary Researcher at the Centre for Research in Autism and Education at University College London. My project Embodying Difference explores links between neurodivergent perception and creativity. Working with arts practitioners with traits associated with Autism, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia and ADHD investigating how their traits may enhance and inform their practice. Mothers of Invention is a project sharing the insights of mothers of autistic children. I draw on my lived experience of being autistic and neurodivergence both personally and as a mother.
