Visual Communication


A Map of Potters Bar

Using typography, images, drawing and moving image my work explores people, places, communities, history, memories, the local, the everyday and the overlooked. Through documentation and research my work aims to engage with people, intervene, create dialogue and challenge our ways of being.

Collaboration plays a large role in my work. Alongside collaborations with fellow practitioners I have worked with schools, youth clubs and a local history society. More recently, I have been collaborating on Red Tape, a student-led discussion series that aims to further understand and challenge contemporary visual communication practice.
