What kind of projects do I do?
From one-off sessions for birthday parties, corporate workshops or even festivals to longer projects depending on the clients requirements. I am happy to do 1-2-1 sessions to help individuals explore their creativity or facilitate small groups.
Most of my work is around inspiring communities through creativity and finding ways to bring people together through art. If you are a housing provider or resident get in contact to discuss any ideas you would like to turn into reality.
I have been working as a Community Artist since graduating with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art (painting) from City and Guilds of London Art School in 2009.
I have worked in schools, festivals, commercial venues and national institutions; creating multi-sensory installations and collaborative artworks.
I like to create artworks that explore different themes such as environmental issues, subjects that reflect the school curriculum and wider cultural narratives. I enjoy using diverse mediums and materials from installation, sound, 3D modelling, paint, fabric and recycled junk.
I have experience of working with primary and secondary school children including those with special needs. I also enjoy working with adults; my work through Cool it Art means I have worked with a broad spectrum of participants from all ages and backgrounds.
I love a challenge so feel free to contact me with your ideas and we can talk them through. I am based in London, but do travel. Please check the portfolio page to see examples of my work.
