I'm from Nürnberg, Germany, based in Ireland. My interests as an artist involve both image-making (film & photography) & writing (short stories).
Working across different disciplines, it is the ideas behind a particular work that structure & guide my process.
My visual work has been shown as part of film festivals (Frameline San Francisco; Galway Film Fleadh; Corona Cork Film Festival; Montecatini Mostra Internazionale Del Cortometraggio, Italy; Merlinka Film Festival, Belgrade, Serbia; Davis Feminist Film Festival, California & others), solo & group exhibitions (Artlink, Fort Dunree, Inishowen; Context Gallery, Derry; Catalyst Arts, Belfast & others) & academic conferences (Journal of Media Practice Symposium, Bristol; ISEA Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts, Belfast; SIEF Congress, Derry & others).
My writing has been published in English & German in numerous anthologies & magazines (e.g. Cuirt Journal; West 47; Macondo - Die Lust am Lesen & others)
In 2010, I completed a PhD with Visual Practice examining the "Visibilities of Childhood in Moving Image", combining art-based methods with recent discourse from cultural geography, visual anthropology & sociology.
I have taught part-time in the School of Art & Design at University of Ulster since 2001 & am a member of the curatorial board at VOID gallery, Derry.
I also work with children; designing & facilitating workshops in lens-based media and story-telling.
