I’m a visual artist, experienced manager and event organiser. As a practicing artist I’ve applied these
skills in leadership roles to deliver innovative solutions across a spectrum of
health and wellbeing services.
I’m passionate about the transformative impact that art and creativity
can have on people and communities. I’ve applied creative processes and thinking
in leadership development workshops that empower people to deliver high quality
services that respond flexibly to changing needs. I’m skilled at developing partnerships that
integrate health, education and cultural provision.
As Well North’s resident artist, I work across the pathfinder sites and
initiatives using creative processes in various ways. I’ve facilitated
immersion workshops that support participants to visualise and map aspirations
that aid the planning process. I‘ve delivered site specific community art
activities to support events during the Infinity Science Festival, Cumbria and
produced artistic responses to Well Bradford’s Onna Bike community cycle ride
that will leave a legacy for Well North’s work.
Personally and professionally, I hold strong beliefs that individuals
can use creativity to unleash new ideas and insights to make positive change.
As an artist I’m passionate about using creative endeavours to overcome obstacles; as an
artist one doesn’t stay still.
As a visual artist, I regularly contribute work to exhibitions and
accept commissions. I also use my skills to run artistic sessions in my
community where people learn and support their wellbeing as they improve
In my free time I’m a DJ and collector of vinyl records. I’ve organised many successful music ventures, enjoying all aspects of event management from performance to promotion.
