I am a Shoreham by Sea based Inclusive Arts Practice (IAP) artist, facilitator and reseacher who loves painting using acrylic inks and gold/silver leaf. I am interested in art which places an emphasis on collaboration, participation, communication, exchange, connection and how this leads to improved mental health and wellbeing.
My artwork explores the sea, light, space, time, perspective and the process of making art. I have a particular interest in the links between the arts and health, having worked for over thirteen years in the NHS in roles within Governance, Engagement, Equality and Administration.
My research explores how Inclusive Arts Practice can support people over 75 to use their hands to promote an increased sense of wellbeing. I will be facilitating more IAP workshops in the local area for people over 70. I have been awarded a grant from The Arts Council in order to do that. I am so excited to continue my research.
