I am a queer artist-scholar and AHRC funded doctoral candidate pursuing my PhD at the intersection of Fine Art, Plant Humanities and Queer Decolonial Feminist Studies at Glasgow School of Art.
My research praxis includes writing, painting and embroidery.
I am currently working on a series of illuminated manuscripts featuring botanical paintings entangled with citations from queer decolonial (and) feminist texts. Through an accumulation of scholarly and artistic work my thesis proposes flowers as ideal companions in asking complex questions about how to live with the capitalist heteropatriarchal colonial legacy of the British Empire.
'Honeysuckle Home' 2022 featuring citations from Ocean Vuong and Sarah Jane Cervenak.
