I am a mixed media artist and art psychotherapist. I earned a BA in Fine Art from Coventry University before going on to study at Goldsmiths University of London for an MA in Art Psychotherapy.
Over the years, it has always been essential for me to stay grounded in my own creative process to be able to effectively guide others through their own artistic journey. This has proved valuable throughout my career, ranging from mental health support work in hospitals to social care work in the charitable sector.
Everyday I set aside time to engage in art making, which is an important self-care ritual for me. The process is very important for me to increase my intuition, self-awareness. It’s how I maintain a connection to creativity, and emotional life.
My art is a deeply personal reflection of my inner world, and a highly subjective and individualised portrayal of the female body. My creative technique is guided by intuition.
I currently reside in Cambridge, UK. As an artist, I work independently and in collaboration with community groups and organisations. I have thirteen years of experience facilitating and promoting art activities for wellbeing in mental health support services, acute rehabilitation services, and residential settings.
I am passionate about helping people to use their creativity, as way to access their natural state and be more authentic.
