Community Projects

When I engage community groups in art making, I realise the value of delivering exciting, informative and creative workshops. These are targeted and written for the individual needs of the specific groups they are intended to capture. I evaluate the successfulness of a group and more importantly the outcomes for the participants as this is of immense value to secure any future funding.

See below for some information and images of specific projects and their outcomes.

I have over 10 years experience working as an art psychotherapist in the field of complex mental health. I use all forms of visual arts and crafts to facilitate recovery from debilitating mental health conditions.
