I believe in access to the arts for all. I am passionate about the benefits of creative self-expression with a focus on process lead work with a strong participatory element for all ages and abilities. I encourage active participation in the ideas, development and production stages, which allows participants to take ownership of the work. Through this child/participant centered approach individuals gain in confidence, self-esteem, creativity and develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.
My relaxed, fun and friendly style encourages self-expression and inspires participants to awaken their imagination, enabling them to discover an exciting range of new techniques, technical skills and unleash their inner artist.
