My Work


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 & creative advocate across many projects, contexts & settings.


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


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


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



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.
