I started curating contemporary visual arts projects in 2003, working either independently or in partnership with established institutions..

Originally trained as a Fine Art Printmaker at Cardiff and Chelsea, I was a practising artist, community artist and art teacher for 15 years before moving into curating.  I have been an active member of grass roots artist's groups such as the Association of Artists and Designers in Wales, Women’s Work and Brixton Artists Collective. From 2006 - 09 I was a member of the London regional board of the Arts Council of England.

From 2003 - 2010 I worked at Autograph ABP, eventually becoming Curator. Here I worked on artist's commissions, publications and exhibitions. I have been Studio Curator for Hew Locke since 2010, and was Curatorial Advocate for Dinu Li from 2018 to 2020. In 2018 I founded the Caribbean Artists' Salon. From  2020 to 2022 I was Artistic Advisor to the Litehouse Gallery.   I mentor artists, give student tutorials, make curatorial presentations, project-manage artist's commissions, and write successful funding applications.  Clients include All Souls College Oxford, New Art Gallery Walsall, Hatchery Arts and Middlesex University.
