Art Practice:

My art practice is primarily concerned with exploring ways of narrating and reframing the female body during and after disease, pre and post-mortality.

Through anthropological, archaeological & allegorist lens my work spans research and installation bringing the conceptual and tangible together through elements of photography (chemical & digital), taxidermy and sculpture.

I curate and organise exhibitions, festivals, and public artworks, and deliver collaborative projects and educational interventions responding to a wide spectrum of needs and methodologies. Partners, collaborators and clients range from academics and fellow artists, to voluntary sector professionals, and vulnerable and underrepresented groups.

My Work & Creative Practice:

I have led a successful freelance creative practice for 20 years working across a broad range of roles including: commissioned artist, consultant, public speaker, mentor, arts officer and creative advocate across many projects, contexts and settings.

I work with diverse partners regionally and internationally from academics and alternative provision providers, to museums and galleries.

My toolkit of extensive skills and experience includes: teaching and working across multiple artforms, facilitating a diverse range of people across ages, backgrounds and needs, managing multi-stranded projects and largescale budgets, and devising, researching, and evaluating creative projects.

I work innovatively addressing wide themes and needs including: systemic inequalities, community cohesion and regeneration, and health and wellbeing.

O meu trabalho e atelier criativo:

Há 20 anos que lidero por conta própria um atelier criativo de sucesso, mantendo diversas funções como artista, consultora, oradora, mentora e defensora das artes em vários projectos, contextos e configurações. Trabalho com diversos parceiros a nível regional e internacional desde instituições académicas a museus e galerias de arte.

O meu conjunto de habilidades e experiência laboral inclui: educadora em várias disciplinas, facilitadora de actividades para grupos de diversas idades, experiencias de vida e necessidades, gestora de projectos em grande escala com orçamentos elevados e pesquisadora e avaliadora de projetos criativos. Trabalho de uma forma inovadora sempre tendo em conta temas correntes e relevantes como: desigualdades sistémicas, coesão e regeneração social e saúde e bem-estar.

Atelier criativo:

O meu trabalho dedica-se principalmente a explorar formas de narrar e entender o corpo feminino durante e depois da doença, pre e pós-mortalidade. Através de uma lente antropológica, arqueológica e alegórica, o meu trabalho vai desde pesquisa até à instalação, conectando o conceptual e o tangível através de elementos fotográficos (analógica e digital), taxidermia e escultura.

Sou curadora e organizadora de exposições, festivais e trabalhos de arte pública. Também tenho experiência em gestão de trabalhos colaborativos e intervenções educacionais que respondem a uma variedade de necessidades e metodologias. Os meus clientes, colaboradores e parcerias são académicos, outros artistas, profissionais de instituições de caridade e grupos vulneráveis e pouco representados na sociedade.
