Since 1986 I have balanced my creative practice with devising and delivering bespoke workshops based on my practice in educational and community settings. I work with groups of all ages and abilities throughout the UK and abroad, including infant, primary, sceondary, sixth form colleges and special schools.
As my practice has evolved, so have the workshops. I believe in sharing the concepts, ideas, methods and materials I work with, that I am most passionate about. The aim is to collaborate with my participants at the highest intellectual and practical levels to encourage their own creative selves to emerge and be formed. I do not want to reproduce versions of my work, but to encourage participants work as a vital artists in their own right. I aim to elicit an authentic kinaesthetic mark.
My central practice is drawing. Now, as well as paper, I use an iPad to draw on. Mixing traditional mark making methods with digital imaging is now key to how I work.
I often perform drawings – drawing dance, storytellers and music live on stage. When funding allows I love to work on educational projects that are multi-disciplinary and collaborate with other artforms such as dance, theatre and music.
