I'm a writer, storyteller and collage artist, working in personal narrative and modern and traditional tales. As well as performing and exhibiting my own work, I work as a creative producer and facilitator in community settings on oral history and social prescribing projects, many of whch have ended up in permanent exhibitions in museums and public institutions. My background is in FE, teaching vulnerable adults and young adults foundation skills and English. I am a literacy and oracy specialist and an Arts Award Advisor and Assessor. I love my work and I'm very proud to be able to offer a diverse and responsive skillset to all the groups I work with, which in turn enriches my own understanding and art. North Tyneside
