I didn’t do art at school, I thought it was for gifted people who could draw like angels. Iwasn’t one of those and was a little scared of it. I introduced more creativity into my life living in London and working in high intensity social care projects.
Working with people to enable positive change has significant purpose for me; my own journey and relationship with art reflects this and has been part of my personal transformation.
I took a foundation course and then a BA in Fine Art at Winchester. Subsequently I set up and developed NewRED studios in Salisbury, a collective that provides a platform for artists to develop and show their own work. It also gave space for me to develop my practice, hold exhibitions and create community participative events.
In 2017 I began an MA in Curatorial practice at Bath Spa University. As a curator, I combine an enjoyment of working with others and bringing together, bridging and exploring entanglements, materials and ideas. I am passionate about engendering new possibilities and perspectives. I believe everything and anything can hold potential for creative inspiration, including and maybe especially the everyday and seemingly ordinary.
