aboutME

An artist and perfumer from Sheffield, UK, my work takes the beauty and craft of perfumery and places it on a contemporary art platform; revealing how it can be considered an art-form, in line with the likes of painting, sculpture and photographyMy work aims to reveal how scent is able to accommodate contemporary art notions such as narrative, metaphor, symbolism and portraiture.

 

My work takes the guise of exhibitions, residencies, workshops and events across the UK and internationally. My main body of work, entitled 'Perfume as Practice', uses perfume to create portraits of other artists. Other artistic concerns involve using scent to explore narrative, religion, travel and the environment.

I am also co-founder of Sheffield-based arts initiative called Fronteer, which provides creative opportunities for artists across the UK. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions, or if you would like to initiate potential collaborations.
