Statement

I am an artist working out of my studio in Cardiff, a teacher with long and varied experience of working with young people, and a project manager working on a number of current projects. My own studio practice has given me the opportunity to work at residencies in Ireland, Germany, Spain and the U.S.

I curate a project – ‘Imagistic’ – where I work with artists and writers on a series of collaborations. We have staged events in the UK  - Chapter Arts Centre and the Millennium Centre – and the U.S.A.

Earlier this year my experience of working with text and image formed the basis for my project with year olds at Tonysguboriau School – writing about pictures, drawing about words. Similarly, my experience working with models informed my biology department project at Morriston Comprehensive School – understanding the body through making structures.

I have taught students at University level on Fine Art, Illustration and Animation courses. I have also participated in community projects including ‘My Riverside’ Project at Kitchener School, Cardiff where I worked with Year 5 children on a drawing project. Students were required to use drawing as a tool for describing and discovering personal histories.
