Having worked at Scotlands biggest community art charity I gained further experience volunteering for 3 years within my local community as an youth worker.  I am a qualified youth worker and have developed my skills as a professional artist alongside this practise. I enjoy combining  both aspects of creative work to bring interactive and engaging activities to various community groups. I have been a freelance artworker for the past 6 years working across communities and age groups in Scotland. Above are examples of workshops I have lead along the theme of recycling and reusing household waste and inexpensive materials. I work in a mix of media so enjoy collaborating with digital and traditional techniques. Whichever works best for the brief. I am confident in my ability to work consciencely to budgets and engage with groups on issues or topics they would like to explore through creative art. If you have a project or a group you would to engage with I am happy to discuss and share ideas. E mail me through the contact page above.
