My art practice 

has three elements

exploration - relationship - transformation


 As a hands-on maker, I work intuitively with materials in response to the landscape.

I reflect this in my practice as an art therapist. I work in groups with adults living with emotionally unstable personality disorder at a therapeutic community within the NHS.


I have 5 years experience of working in palliative care, where I developed the Doodle Group. A therapeutic and rehabilitative patient group within the wellbeing programme.
