I am recognised for combining my skills as an Occupational Therapist with my Arts Practitioner and Project Coordinator roles. I have a Masters in Public Art and my practice focuses on process driven art projects within a variety of community spaces.
I am also a lacemaker, having made bobbin lace for over half my life. My current projects involve introducing contemporary lace works into the public realm, bringing lace ‘beyond the doily’.
