Art forms: Visual artist, community engagement and public arts

Summary: Public and community engagement forms a large part of my practice, and I enable a range of art activities that includes painting (from individual work to large scale murals), assemblage using found objects, collage, and photo-transfer. My public arts commissions are usually informed by a community engagement process, and as well as public and private commissions, I undertake school residencies tailored to meet the needs of the curriculum and/or project theme in hand. I have worked with children and adults of all ages and abilities, and in institutions as diverse as schools, colleges, residential homes, museums and prisons. Projects range from one day drop-in workshops at fetes and fairs, Creative Partnerships school projects, artist residencies, and major public arts commissions. I have a clean driving licence, enhanced disclosure CRB, and public liability cover.
