As a freelance artist I work on projects producing decoration, sculpture and creative spaces. Over the years I have brought workshop ideas and methods into schools, businesses and events to encourage team building and creativity. I have over ten years experience project managing and organising a wide-range of international collaborative visual arts projects and private commissions.
I have run workshops for children with challenging behaviour and for adults with learning difficulties, as well as organising community art projects and INSET training days.
I aim to offer a supportive, enriching experience when working with communities so that they are inspired and empowered.
