I am a freelance writer based in London.
I write for the Guardian, the Times, the Art Newspaper, Elephant, the Quietus, the Economist and more. My beat is culture in general – and art in particular, with all manner of other things in between. I've written about why I love old stamps, why I never scream and why sometimes I listen to the same song on loop for months on end.
My most recent piece is an interview with Frank Auerbach, the German-British painter whose work taught me to see and to draw. Speaking to him was the greatest privilege.
Other recent highlights include interviews with J-pop outliers Chai, kora master Ballaké Sissoko and American filmmaker Lucy Raven. I've delved into Uyghur intangible heritage and French marine archeology. I've covered the music we work to and the woman Land Art forgot. What I'm always trying to get at is why people do what they do, and why that matters.
A compulsive multitasker, I also cover tech, health, work, food and lifestyle, with deep-dives into micro-scheduling, the animals being eaten into extinction and the restaurants critics might kill with praise.
I have an MA and MPhil in Art History and Philosophy from Aix-Marseille III University, and an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art.
