Find Out More About My Work.
I am a native British Sign Language user and strive to illuminate Deaf Culture within mainstream forums. I began my professional career as an illustrator, working in collaboration with writer Julia Donaldson on her children’s book Gruffalo. Since then I've worked extensively as an ambassador for Deaf awareness.
In 2012 I was invited by the Paralympics to produce and direct Driving Inspiration, a short film involving children from across the UK. By invitation, I have contributed to an array of national and international festivals, including: Festival Clin d'Oeil - France, Tolosa Spanish International Deaf Festival and the Hong Kong International Deaf Film Festival.
In February 2014, I received an Artist International Development Award from Arts Council England, enabling me to travel to Hong Kong and begin the research and development of Gothrella. With support from Arts Council England, I'm embarking upon the research and development of a live action theatre production, made for Deaf and hearing children and their families.
I am a senior adviser to Surface Area Dance Theatre CIC and have worked with the company for two years to promote Deaf culture and awareness.
