I regularly exhibit my work across the UK and more recently, internationally. I was one of four British artists selected by the Royal College of Art to take part in a touring exhibition in Japan, where I exhibited in Nara, Fukuoka and Okeyama. I have also had my work shown in Brussels and in the USA.

In the UK I have exhibited at the Whitechapel Art Gallery, Royal Festival Hall, Courtauld Institute, Milch Gallery, Oval House, Sadlers Wells and the Richard Attenborough Centre, among others.

Other projects have included 'Still Lights', a series of digital photographic light boxes exploring the nature of visual impairment, which was supported by funding from the Arts Council of England Innovate grant. I participated in a collaborative digital arts project with London Fieldworks on Lundy Island. I have also made work from travels in Iceland, New York and Japan.
