(Born 1994 Harare, Zimbabwe) 

(Lives in Edinburgh, Scotland) 

I am an emerging, award-winning experimental poet and interdisciplinary artist from Edinburgh. I have an expanded understanding of artistic disciplines and an awareness of alternative hybrid possibilities. In my avant-garde poetry-plays, which is the prevailing manifestation of my practice, I blend (and blur the boundaries of) painting, poetry, theatre, spoken word, performance art, and stand-up comedy. Wry humour; parody; absurdity; obscenity; self-absorbed performances; metatheatrical devices - these are trademarks of my writing and performance work. My sculptural mixed-media paintings are made from discarded materials I have scavenged and double up as theatrical scenery in my hybrid productions. Collage is an essential technique in both my painting and writing practices. I am dedicated to the subversion and advancement of disciplines in the arts.  

I am also a founding member of artist collective-cum-experimental troupe Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn with Liverpool artist and poet Daniel O’Dempsey. Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn consists of O’Dempsey and I as abiding contributors and includes anyone that we collaborate with when operating as the collective. It is a vehicle for experimentation, collaboration and developing ideas within the realms of visual art, performance, spoken word, poetry, music, and theatre.
