I'm a London-based academic, writer, curator and amateur ceramicist, currently working as Research Associate on the project ‘Shakespeare in the Royal Collections’, King’s College London.
My PhD (2018) was on seduction in the work of Jean-Antoine Watteau (1684-1721) and William Hogarth (1697-1764) at Birkbeck, and I’ve previously worked as a research assistant on the exhibitions Painter's Paintings: From Freud to Van Dyck (National Gallery, 2016), Masters of the Everyday: Dutch Artists in the Age of Vermeer (The Queen's Gallery, 2015-6) and Canaletto and the Art of Venice (The Queen's Gallery, 2017).
Whilst studying at the Courtauld Institute of Art, I co-curated Impress: Printmaking Expanded in Contemporary Art (Courtauld Gallery, 2014). I was also the first Guest Curator at the newly reopened Bethlem Museum of the Mind, with the exhibition Bryan Charnley: the Art of Schizophrenia (2014-15), and in 2018 co-curated James Henry Pullen: Inmate, Inventor, Genius at Watts Gallery - Artists’ Village.
When I'm not doing any of that, I also teach the humanities to students aged 15+ as a private tutor.
