May 2020 News
Convenience Gallery invited me to participate in their #AnotherNightIn project as part of this year's Light Night one night arts festival in Liverpool. The festival was initially cancelled due to Covid-19, but it was then moved online.
I took a photo of myself in my 'home studio' - a wall of the living room/dining room/kitchen that I have used since moving to Liverpool in late 2018. There are also a few photos from my pregnancy project.

April 2020 News
I danced to Tiago Bettencourt's song Dança for his new music video.
We had been planning to make the video in Liverpool, but due to lockdown it was made in our living rooms.
He is one of my favourite singers, so it was really exciting to be approached by him to dance to his song.
You can watch the video here.

Just a few days before lockdown in the UK, I photographed JC Leisure for the May 2020 issue of The Wire to accompany words by Antonio Poscic.

A crop of the photo appears online here.
