alabamathirteen is a largely self-taught visual artist from Leeds.

Her practice focuses on her own personal limitations exploring, navigating & negotiating the spaces she occupies as a disabled, working class woman. 

Using photography, embroidery and sound, her work explores how we occupy our bodies, spaces and places both as individuals and as a society, and particularly the concept of ‘non-conforming’ bodies as an act of defiance. Who gets to take up the most space? Whose voices get to be heard the loudest? 

She is on the board of trustees at Shape Arts, a disability-led organisation which works to improve access to culture for disabled people and supports disabled artists to develop their careers, and an Artist Ambassador for Outside In, a national charity that aims to provide a platform for artists who face significant barriers to the art world due to health, disability, social circumstance or isolation. She is also a founding member of DISrupt, a collective of disabled artists in Leeds.
