I am a visual artist and writer. I make work concerned with the blurring of fiction and reality, and the possibilities of what occupies the space in between, using performance, video, text, and installation. Some of it is funny. My work has been exhibited and performed internationally, in galleries and at art events, as well as at spoken word events, conventions, comedy gigs and major arts festivals. I am the author of two books, and co-writer and -performer of a sell-out Edinburgh Festival Fringe show.
