My interest in ‘health’ and the interface of art, science and spirituality leads me to projects involving workshops and exhibitions with schools and community groups throughout the South West. These are intended to provide a forum for engaging with topical subjects such as dementia, depression/anxiety, mindfulness / meditation etc…

Since 2008 I have been a Visiting Artist at Three Ways Special Needs School in Bath working in a therapeutic context with students with Autism, Downs Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy.
