I try to make sense of the world through drawing. I take drawing to be more than a technique – rather a disposition that reveals our connections with the world of materials and each other. A drawing from, with and together.

In places, over extended periods, I consider how we improvise and imagine in response to our immediate problems. Be it in villages, refuges, caravan parks, lockdown… I build deep connections with people in the celebration and support of site-specific responses, DIY architectures and community actions.

I use process-led principles and advocate asset based co-production approaches – often working in collaboration with organisations, researchers and curators.

I am an experienced mentor and educator who challenges and disrupts thinking, supporting people to reflect on or activate change.
