I am an artist, writer and yoga teacher. I hold a Professorship from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where I work as an Athenaeum Research Fellow. When I am not following Freud, Lacan and Marx’s footsteps with my camera, or creating one-to-one durational performance works, I teach postgraduate students at Transart Institute and Köln International School of Design. I start my day practicing yoga and taking one photograph at 7am.

My artwork is multidisciplinary and crossed over fine art, performance and the medical humanities. My recent pieces explore knowledge and the body of the hysteric through text, voice, dance and video. I am currently working on translating Freud’s case histories into performances.

My writing emerges from my practice as an artist. I have written on the seductive qualities of Philippe Stack’s Juicy Salif, co-edited a collection of essays titled ‘Madness, Women and the Power of Art’ to which I contributed a work, written with Eleanor Bowen. I completed a monograph entitled 'Make Me Yours: How Art Seduces', and have written on psychoanalysis, inter semiotic translation, peace building and performance making.

I teach and practice Ashtanga Yoga and Pranayama in the Kaivalyadham tradition. My yoga shows me discipline, compassion, patience, and letting go. I teach regularly in Glasgow, at the Arlington Baths (as part of Rosina Bonsu's programme) and at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
