  • Biography
A mature student returned to arts after an extended period of severe ill-health due to disability. Interested in building sustainable art practices, improving relationships with nature, human connection, therapeutic art practices, and building local community. With ambitions to use art to enrich communities, improve individual wellbeing and spark curiosity towards a sustainable future.

My work is process-driven. I use foraging and found objects to create materials and works; experiment using natural forces in my processes; have unusual methods or ritualistic practices. I use creative practice to manage symptoms of my disability. Much of my work is abstract using painting, drawing, and mixed media and often involves the documentation of my process.

Seeking opportunities to assist the community, volunteer in roles helping with arts and crafts, and getting folks outdoors. Especially interested in assisting in arts groups for adults and young people living with disabilities.

Note that all services offered are to assist on a volunteer/experience gaining basis. I do not currently have formal training in these roles.
