I am an artist filmmaker. I film as daily practice of looking more slowly at the world as a type of care. For over twenty-five years I have used the camera to have a personal, ongoing conversation with the world around me. I use my lenses as fingertips to trace the light and the air, and to hone into what emerges with looking.

I use my huge uncertainties always as a starting point, collecting footage like pages of a sketch book. My core working process uses and reuses this expanding reservoir of vibrant images. It is a small personal rebellion that attempts to protect my sense of our flimsy and devastating world and to look after the things I see. I try to feel my way as a filmmaker, a woman and a mother, embracing how these shifting experiences can overlap and inform each other.

I co-founded The Electric Palace Cinema in Hastings, UK, curating a year-round programme that supported filmmakers and film-lovers for over twenty years, finally stepping down in 2023.

After gaining a PhD in film by practice with Exeter University, I formed Dear Future Films in 2023, a Community Interest Company developing films, live film-mixing projects and workshops. Our annual Dear Future Festival ignites conversation and explores new ways of thinking into the future through film and moving image. We collaborate with musicians, artists, filmmakers, thinkers, scientists, writers and poets.

I am a visiting lecturer for the MA documentary department at The London Film School. My workshops facilitate creative thinking through the practice of film.
