    Personal profile


    I am an artist and researcher working collaboratively with Katheryn Owens as ‘greenandowens’. Our practice is multidisciplinary and includes performance writing, sound, scores, zines, craft, walking and performances of the everyday. We hold a co-authored practice-research PhD from the University of Plymouth, that investigated performance writing as a textual, material, and visual practice in relation to socio-economic experiences of millennial precarity, using our friendship as a method within this. Our work operates in the fields of performance studies, drama, visual culture, and contemporary art.  

    In 2022 Owens and I were commissioned as part of the Suzanne Lacy retrospective What Kind of City at the Whitworth, Manchester to create Borderlines, a walking performance that was created in collaboration with the queer constituent group. Drawing inspiration from Lacy’s work Across and In-between (2018) we invited participants to map out their queer borders of the city (some of these being invisible and some more clearly defined), which we then set out to walk. We have had our creative practice and research published in a range of peer reviewed journals including Platform, Performance Research and Studies in Theatre and Performance as well as in a number of artist publications.

    I am currently in the process of planning several postdoctoral research activities, including a co-authored book project drawing on the findings of our doctoral research, and a new practice-research project looking at swimming in relation to leisure, joy, and post/anti-work theory that will feed into a wider project on millennial aesthetics. I am also working as a co-editor (with Dominic Bilton) on a forthcoming special issue of the peer-reviewed journal Art and The Public Sphere, ‘Queer(ing) art, curation, and collaboration’.

    Before joining the department in 2022 I taught at Leeds Beckett University, The Institute for Study Abroad, The University of Plymouth, and Sheffield Hallam on modules focusing on arts and social change, the body, situated practices, live art and practice-research.
