Poetry has been an anchor for me since being young, as has Nature which features strongly in my work. I write poems to be said as well as read. The words lead to images and so I draw, paint and make too. I like to shine a light on the lessons found in 'dark', hidden, and forbidden places and spaces. Inclusion, accessibilty and collaboration are important to me. I work with arts and culture organisations and other artists to widen access to, and definitions of, art.
