OCTOBER 2023

Farm studio India

Artist in residence

In India I started my study in the colours that make a place and can be associated with a culture.

I embarked on this study with the use of photography (documentary style), creating natural dye baths with fabric and local plants and colour matching with gouache and watercolour paints to create the colours around me.

My goal is to continue the study across four countries with the intention to exhibit the final works comparing the colours of each place.

December 2022 – August 2024

Capricorn – La Boite Theatre

I was responsible for creating all of the video content for the play Capricorn.

This included both scripted segments and more interruptive pieces (memories through a window)

This work was all filmed and edited in a stylised format to be incorporated through projection and a TV screen on and around the stage.
