I am an artist and educator whose artistic practice spans disciplines that include Performance and Live Art, Installation, Book Sculptures, Painting, Drawing, Mixed Media Construction and Theatre Devising, Production and Design. Primarily I am motivated by the power of experience and communicating this to an audience. These experiences can range from an intense engagement with a novel, architecture, the natural and urban environments, cultural and personal moments and events. My approach to artistic education is underpinned by my understanding of social pedagogic principles which focus on providing a holistic educational experience; I consider that young people’s emotional and social needs are as equally important to their educational ones. I have worked in arts education with young people for over 20 years, am an artist and Education Coordinator at Fermynwoods Contemporary Art, a Creative Projects Associate at Royal and Derngate Theatre in Northampton, have worked as an Artist Educator with NN Contemporary Art and Full House Theatre in Bedford.
