My short film What it Feels Like has been screened internationally and was the winner of Best International Documentary award at the Focus on Ability Film Festival Australia, Best Short Documentary St Neots International Film Festival and Best Amateur Film Walthamstow Smartphone Film Festival. My latest short Prosopagnosia was developed with support from the Scottish Documentary Institute and had its world premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2021. The film has won several awards including the Marvels of Media Award at the Museum of Moving Image in New York and has been featured and presented in the New York Times Op-Docs online film strand. My short Dix Pix was nominated for the Iris Prize and has screened at over 40 international film festivals.
In 2014 I started Do It Theatre, a company that utilises illustration, animation and zines to tell stories through unique theatre performances. The technique was created for autistic adults and people with metal health related behaviours, but the work can appeal to everyone.
Do It Theatre have performed at numerous theatre and art festivals in the UK and Australia and received a New Emerging Theatre Company Award from New Diorama Theatre and a Starter for Ten Award from the National Theatre of Scotland. I also received a Small Grant Award for the Tom McGrath Trust to conduct further research into theatre, storytelling and mental health.
Do It Theatre events have taken place at the Hidden Door Festival Edinburgh, Sydney Fringe Festival Australia, Paisley Arts Centre, Dundee Rep, BasicSpace Festival Peckham, Camden People’s Theatre, Rich Mix London, Lyric Hammersmith London, New Diorama Theatre London and many more locations.
I have also exhibited artwork in over 60 galleries all over the world, including exhibitions in Edinburgh, London, Manchester, Istanbul, San Francisco, Toronto and Dundee.
As a comic book writer and artist and zine maker I have presented my work at many comic cons, zines fests and events. These have included Glasgow Comic Con, Edinburgh Comic Art Festival, Glasgow Zine Fest, Tokyo Art Book Fair, Strange Perfume Book Festival London, Birmingham Zine Fest, Weirdo Zine Fest Leeds, Queer Zest Zine Fest and Hackney Comic and Zine Fest.
