I have been creating, painting and recording the world around me for as long as I can remember. Since receiving my BA ( Hons) in Fine Art from Norwich University of the Arts in England, I have continued to grow and develop as an artist and visual communicator.
I have designed curricula, run art classes and camps, used art to give a visual language to encourage productive self expression with adults and children , and work as a painter, muralist, illustrator and scenic painter. All of these opportunities have sharpened my listening , processing, problem solving, flexibility and production skills.
In 2011 when I added visual communication and Graphic recording to my creative practise, I brought these skills together with my artistic talents to the strategic planning, organizational development, and community conversations arena.
I produce engaging , effective visuals in real time conversations or after the collaborative work has been done and a vibrant summary image is needed.
These visuals are used to map the journey to implementation, reflect the process that generated the ideas and raised the questions, illustrate the history of an organization and communicate the vision ( to name a few).
And yes , I still do artwork and murals.
