Inquiry, questioning and reflection are at the heart of my practice that uses drama and art as a tool to stimulate, inspire and motivate children, young people and adults. I believe in using and developing creativity so that children, young people and adults are able to develop and practice a range of skills to enable them to become independent, logical and creative thinkers.
My background is in drama in the community and I am, and have always been a keen advocate of drama as a learning tool. My experience in creating performances for and with the schools and the community is vast from using forum theatre with young mothers to creating performances with over 200 children from seven different schools.
Working in partnership with children and staff I plan, deliver and support a wide range of bespoke programs that embraces a collaborative approach utlising the arts. My work is underpinned by a belief in inclusive participation and co construction while creating a safe, yet challenging, creative space.
I am a qualified Teacher, Youth and Community worker, have an MA in Contemporary Theatre, am an Approved Trainer in Mantle of the Expert and am currently studying an MA in Education.

the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless
