right now

I am currently building a body of work - film, painting, poetry and performance - for 'Delusions of Grandma' my first solo show with Quench Gallery Margate in 2024. This work follows on from my DYCP funded development with Arts Council England in 2022.

 

I am also taking on paid performance work that I am able to make relevant to this project, such as my 15-minute drag piece 'Like Father'. If you want something raw, go to my Margate Radio show for relaxed, intimate chat about family and class with madly various great music.
