I am a freelance culture writer and arts worker based in Birmingham, UK. In 2012 I was awarded a PhD for my thesis on Women Surrealists from the University of Birmingham. This was predated by an MA in Modern European Cultures (UoB, 2007) and a BA (Hons) in Media and Communications from Birmingham City University (2005).
My interests include – but are not restricted to:
- Women Surrealists (obviously!), Surrealism and cool women of history
- Ballet and dance
- Costume and fashion
- Femininity and sexuality
- The marvellous and the superfluous
- Old Hollywood and cinema
- Magic, Witchery and the esoteric
I am working on my first book, The Hollywood Surreal, which will be published by The Critical Press.
