I am an interdisciplinary artist, musician, composer and workshop facilitator based in Newcastle upon Tyne (UK). My practice is centered around performance, electronic music composition, video collage and print. Improvisation and collaboration are key elements in my process, all driven by a desire to explore the concept of 'future folk' ~ ad hoc, at hand, accessible ~ expressive, community focused experiences that defy genre and situational norms ~ we are rooted in our folk histories and reaching out into the darkness.
