About Me

From 2005 I offer local community visual arts including sand art, sketching, painting with watercolor, acrylic and oils, charcoal, pastels, digital imaging, sculpting and a variety of other crafts helping adults and kids to engage with each other and reduce isolation. Participants are gaining back confidence, improving self esteem and social skills.

My ambition is to put the art at the heart of community and people at the heart of the art.

My aim is for everyone in local community to have the opportunity to develop a rich and varied artistic and creative life.
