Personal profile

Originally trained in visual art, my practice crosses the disciplines of poetry, art, installation, performance, and video. Essentially experimental, my work investigates language through explorations into creative processes and artistic methods of making. I like to collaborate with other creative practitioners to produce live performance, art objects, recordings and texts pieces. 


Research Interests

The aim of my practice-led PhD is to develop a poetic practice based on visual arts methods of making.


My research interests are:

- Experimental poetry


- Contemporary poetics


- Contemporary visual art practices


- Interdisciplinary poetics and performance
