ARtist - Taxidermist - Meme originator
Born in Wales. Lives and works in LOndon.
" my two main passions have always been making things and animals. In 2005 I started doing ethical Taxidermy. As a vegetarian I wanted to work with animals that would be usually be discarded. There were no women doing taxidermy full time back then and I was interested in changing that. Simultaneously I was studying fine art. MY work WAS ANimal/ Science RESEARCH BASED INSTALLATION ART. CONSISTING OF SCULPTURE, DRAWING, LARGE CONSTRUCTIONS, FILM, SOUND AND DISSERTATIONS.
I MADE THE INFAMOUS STONED fox in 2011. At the time I was studying for my MASTERS AT THE ROYAL ACADEMY SCHOOLS. Little did I know what an impact that fox would have on my future.
By 2013 My obsessive research led to me being the UK'S LEADING FEMALE CRYPTOZOOLOGICAL RESEARCHER. As a result I WAS ASKED TO TRAVEL TO SUMATRA ON AN 18 DAY EXPEDITION TO OBTAIN SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE OF a new SPECIES. The research trip was funded and filmed by ARTE EUROPE. During the expedition also got to teach Taxidermy at the biology department of a local University. The documentary was shown at Pariscience and continues to be broadcast internationally in many languages.
That same year I flew to russia for PRESS TOURS IN ST PETERSBURG AND MOSCOW. My solo shows AND SERIES OF ARTISTS TALKS there were the first of their kind to be held in russia. There was an insane amount of controversy when I was accused of being a SPY.
I had always thought that exhibiting in a gallery was the best way to display my work but SEEING MY WORK SHARED, ALTERED AND DISPLAYED BY millions of PEOPLE WHO WOULD NEVER GO INTO A GALLERY... INSTANTLY FELT REALLY IMPORTANT TO ME.
SInce then I have been concentrating on other ways of showing the world my work.
Making work that connects across borders, Class divides, cultures and languages in the most simple and impactful ways is what excites me. Many of my photographs of my work have been shared millions of times throughout the world. Hopefully this is just the start "
