I am a creative educator with a passion for fusing the digital and daily realms together. I believe art is a powerful tool for individuals to find their own purpose through, using a plethora of materials and processes to discover their true and authentic identities.
Digital technologies play a core role in my art practice as I strive to create works of performance that use low-tech and widely accessible media in order to impact the lives of audiences watching or participating within my artwork.
Within my ever-evolving creative practice, I believe there is a clear link between my neurodiversity and my ability to develop unique artwork. As a neurodiverse individual, I use my experiences to influence my creative practice – using the barriers and stigmas that society places upon those such as myself to spark a social change and eradicate stereotypes in the world; if only on a minor scale.
My philosophy is rooted in using new developments and emerging creative platforms to provide powerful experiences for all to enjoy. I believe every individual has the potential to define their own identity – as an artist, as a creative, as a leader – if they wish to do so.
As an inclusive arts practitioner I aspire to support individuals in their creative journeys through life: through exploring, discovering, adventuring and making artwork that allows them to authentically represent themselves and self advocate. In particular, I have a keen interest and drive to support people with High Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorders, and young people in alternative provision educational organisations.
My creative does not consist only in traditional creative settings such as theatres and exhibitions, it extends to conferences, educational settings and online; all with a core theme of PERSPECTIVE.
‘Perspective-play’ can be seen in my work often as I over-expose images using free editing software, using distortion through soundscapes and visual graphics in order to create work that focusses on tantalising the senses and allowing audiences to experience life ”in my shoes”- if only for a brief moment.
So step into my world. It would be great to connect.
