Lives in London
Attended event in Bexhill on Sea

When I was a child my ambition was to be a private detective. Now I want to be an artist when I grow up, but there is still something that draws me very strongly to this character. For several years my practice has revolved around surveillance and disguise, often with a gently political angle and always with a playful sense of humour. My work tells stories and I choose the best way to get each story across with: text, sculpture, photography, drawing and, increasingly, with interventions in public spaces.

I'm currently living, working and very happy in East London.
