Welcome to my HeArt Space
Here you can see my current work as well as past creative projects. I choose the media according to what needs to be expressed and enjoy painting, sculpting in clay, multimedia installation, film, performance art and words.
This work is a process of accessing and releasing the voice of inner wisdom, the Source, Divine Guidance, The Beloved, Soul, Shakti, the Goddess, however one wants to describe it, through painting. I start by listening deeply and allowing myself to be guided by the inspiration calling me whether it be a feeling, shapes & colours in the landscape, an image, the paint colours in my palette or a movement from within.
I create site responsive multimedia installations. My work explores environmental concerns, connecting the local to the global and has a strong participatory focus. I often invite the viewer to co-create the work. Ritual, cross-cultural connections and the experience of migration have informed this work.
I have wide experience teaching and facilitating arts workshops in schools, colleges and the community.
I bring a cross-cultural focus to my educational practise, which also offers cross-curricular applications. I aim to inspire participants to explore creative and positive forms of self-expression, to promote positive self-image. Support and encourage trust, interaction and the development of relationships that acknowledge and respect each individual's contribution
My early career was as a graphic designer, later I trained as a theatre designer achieving a First Class Honours Degree from Rose Bruford College and have a wide experience over ten years of designing for a range of theatre spaces and productions nationally.
