I am an artist and teacher living and working in London. I work in a variety of media including drawing and printmaking. I am interested in narrative and place in my work.
For the sketchbook project I have reimagined my hospital file. As someone with a chronic health condition, spending time in hospital and undergoing surgery, I found the experience of being a patient tended reduce me to my disease - a collection of symptoms, measured and charted against clinical norms.
My caregivers were on the whole wonderful, but the experience of moving through the healthcare system led me to examine the relationship between the medical environment and the individual. My sketchbook is an attempt to make the clinical personal by interpolating my experience into my case history.
