Social Practice

With over 20 years of experience as an artist, I am delighted to share my journey and passion for art through my social practice. Throughout the years, I have had the privilege of engaging with diverse audiences and facilitating workshops for participants of all ages. My extensive background includes delivering teacher CPD sessions, where I focus on enhancing both mental health and wellbeing, as well as improving and expanding teachable art skills.

As a qualified teacher with a PGCE, I understand the significance of supporting educators in their professional development. I offer CPD sessions tailored to teachers, providing them with valuable tools and techniques to incorporate art into their curriculum effectively. These sessions not only empower teachers to enhance their students' artistic abilities but also emphasize the importance of mental health and wellbeing. By integrating mindful art practices, teachers can create a nurturing classroom environment that fosters emotional resilience and creativity.

In addition to teacher CPD sessions, I also specialize in delivering corporate development, wellbeing, and team-building sessions through art. I firmly believe that art has the power to unite and inspire teams, fostering a collaborative and supportive work culture. Through interactive and engaging activities, I facilitate sessions that encourage participants to explore their creativity, communicate their ideas, and build strong interpersonal connections. These sessions provide a unique platform for corporate teams to unwind, boost their creativity, and enhance their overall wellbeing.

Working with pupils and community groups on projects and murals that they can take ownership of is a profound aspect of my artistic practice. I firmly believe in the power of collaboration and the impact it can have on individuals and communities. When working with pupils, I strive to create a safe and inclusive space where their voices are heard and their ideas are valued. Together, we embark on artistic journeys, co-creating meaningful projects and murals that reflect their unique perspectives and experiences. By involving participants in the entire artistic process, from conceptualization to execution, we cultivate a sense of ownership and pride in the final artwork. This approach extends to community groups as well, where we collaborate to produce murals that celebrate the collective identity and narratives of the community. The end result is not just a beautiful mural, but a symbol of unity, resilience, and shared creativity. These collaborative endeavors have the power to transform spaces, foster a sense of belonging, and leave a lasting impact on the individuals involved and the wider community.

Alongside workshops and professional development sessions, I offer my expertise in creating captivating murals for schools, commercial buildings, and private homes. Murals have the ability to transform spaces, infusing them with energy, creativity, and a distinct artistic flair.
