Art therapist, Artist, Consultant, Maker
Location: London (UK)


I am a visual artist based in London. Physicality underpins a creative practice with my skin. As a primary source for corporeal artwork and imaginative transformation. Compulsive Skin Picking dominated my life for more than 20 years. But through a background in dance and theatre. I also confronted the condition to harness creative repair and recovery. Also, I create intimate artworks. Photographs and performances exploring the body. Focused repetitive behaviour of skin picking.


I have exhibited and performed my work in therapuetic settings. Galleries and venues in the UK. Australia. USA and Japan. I aspire to de-stigmatise Compulsive Skin Picking. Raise awareness and advocate recovery through public talks. My story and art has been profiled on BBC World Service Outlook. BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour, and BBC Arabic. TV’s art programme Afaq. My studio is on Havelock Walk in South London. Finally, a creative community of sculptors, painters, designers. Photographers and other visual artists.
