I am a painter, sculptor and printmaker.
I have worked in many roles in the creative industries from placemaking (rebranding towns and cities) to Film and theatre.
I also work in hospitals and prisons to help people reimagine their circumstances.

I would like to talk about my work in Youth Justice.
I am separate from the Justice System. My work is with Young People who have already received a conviction. I try to help them work through trauma and the experiences they have had that have led them to have a conviction.
