Visual Arts:

I am an artist working with textile processes and sculpture, to create pieces that take inspiration from the history of materials and traditional forms of industry. My Applied Art background informs my interest and curiosity in challenging materials and methods of working, to produce pieces of work that can be unexpected and aim to tell a story.
I regularly exhibit throughout Hertfordshire and London, and love working collaboratively with other artists and creative practitioners. My work can be seen at

Workshop facilitation and Community engagement:

Based mainly within St Albans and the surrounding districts of Hertfordshire, I am available to run workshops in schools, community groups, creative settings and for local and national events such as The Big Draw. I have experience of working with children, families, young people and groups with additional needs, and I am a supporter of learning and community engagement through accessible art activity.
I work with Community and Arts Development Teams to engage a number of schools, groups and the general public in art based sessions and projects. Past work includes Flying Colours, Olympic 2012 Recycled and Albantide.
I am also a trained Bronze and Silver Arts Award Adviser, enabling children and young people to gain a recognised qualification and grow their talents within the arts and leadership.

If you are looking for someone to run creative workshops in your setting, you can contact me at

Gallery Programming:

I work as the Gallery Programmer for Trestle Arts Base, home to Trestle Theatre Company in St Albans. We offer free exhibition space to local artists within our popular Gallery Café, and also work with local community groups and organisations such as HVA and the St Albans Arts, Sport and Health Team to support their events and projects. We are always looking for new groups of people to work with and provide a platform for, so if you would like to get in touch regarding exhibiting/arts events at Trestle, then contact me at
