I have a passion for developing inclusive access to the arts and believe that the arts can empower children and young people to become the next generation of creative thinkers, leaders and innovators. Through my participatory work I aim to provide multiple entry points and alternative pathways through creativity aimed at building children's self-esteem, autonomy and life skills.
In 2018 I had the honour of receiving The Marsh Award for Excellence in gallery education. Find out more here:
I enjoy working collaboratively with artists, galleries and educational practitioners and believe this can develop better opportunities for children to access the arts.
Since September 2017 I have collaboratively developed ARTonomy Projects: innovative and playful art workshops aimed at empowering children and young people to become autonomous artists. Working with a co-production approach ARTonomy Projects enables children to - explore, create and exhibit their own art.

Past projects include ‘Untitled Play’ which invited young artists to become co-producers and to ‘take over’ a space to create evolving and interactive installations.
