I work as an artist/events coordinator and focus on public engagement. As a volunteer for a small community group called ArtAnon, I aim to provide creative workshops for existing groups and the general public in Manchester. The workshops aim to promote artistic expression and hope to build confidence by creating public displays of collaborative art work. I am also part of an artists' collective called Juncture, a new group of Embroidery graduates, based in Manchester. My work uses abstract drawing techniques and body-painting to explore pattern and colour within a chosen focus. Manchester
