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, nature 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. I use process-led principles and advocate for strength based co-production approaches. Often working in collaboration with artists, organisations, researchers and curators.

I am experienced in supporting people and organisations to reflect on or activate change.
