I am a writer, photographer, artist and existential eclectic psychotherapist and my practice is based in Lancashire. I have mainly produced work (whether in written or visual form) which has explored the ideas of identity, memory, legacy, all from a macro-perspective and in full awareness. Most of my work stems from self-reflection, backed by academic research, substantiated by experimental practice, developed by critique and then presented with the support of diverse resources, including presentations and workshops.

During these past 2 years, as a mature art student, I have seen my practice deepen, develop, expand and find its own rightful shape and direction. This is not a finished journey by all means: the practice is in constant evolution.

At the moment I am working on my Final Major Project, which is the scope of this Research. This opportunity will then inform the final piece as part of my practice-based research on the concepts of seeing and being seen. The FMP, titled “Do you see me?” aims to be a translation in visual form of the literary emotional journey as described in my latest book, now in the final draft stage. I am seeing self-portraiture under different lights and as emotional and tri-dimensional experiences.
