In 2019, I completed my PhD project Portraying the radical reform movement in 1790s Britain which was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The collaborative doctoral award was based between the National Portrait Gallery and Queen Mary University. I have received awards from the Lewis Walpole Library, the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art and the British Federation of Women Graduates. I am pursuing my research into popular uses of portraiture within the long campaign for democratic reform.
As well as being a Teaching Fellow in SED, I am also the Assistant Curator at the National Portrait Gallery where I work on the contemporary commissioning programme.
I am also the director of the collective AMP Art. I was curator and artist on our first Arts Council England, Art Fund and The British Council funded project refuge/e which toured Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Museums Sheffield, BALTIC centre for contemporary art and Southbank Centre, reaching 10,000 visitors in 2017. www.amp-art.org
