I am a London-based artist driven by research-led projects centred around notions of memory and place. My practice is about interrogating urban environments for the traces of less known and hidden histories through imagery, sound and archives. Most of my work is naturally lit, whether it is nature observations, urban landscape or in-situ portraits and interviews, where I search for encounters with subjectivities and experiences. My work has been displayed in Bosnia, Germany, Italy, Poland, Russia, Spain, Ukraine, and the UK in solo and group shows. 

London organisations I worked with include Alexandra PalaceBishopsgate Institute, British MuseumChats Palace, Dash ArtsHackney Archives & MuseumHousmansIngeenium, JW3, Open School East, PhotoVoice, RichMixRowan ArtsSOAS, UK Jewish FilmV&A Museum of Childhood.
