Health and Wellbeing

During recent years I have combined arts and heritage with a health and well being focus. During projects and workshops, I develop connections and draw out memories and stories, through relaxed creative activities often using mark making and drawing. This has included working with a range of older people and schools, organising and delivering a range of creative practices linked to heritage themes, such as mono printing, collage, drawing, investigating objects, recreating artifacts, drawing and illustrating onto these. I am part of the regional Health and Well being group.

I am able to deliver, project manage and evaluate health related arts, heritage and health projects.

Past clients and partners include: NHS, Age Uk, Rugby Art Gallery and Museum, Belgrave theatre, Compton Verney, Escape Arts , Arts Uplift.
