Portfolio
I am a multi-discipliinary artist, writer, creative facilitator and communications specialist, based in Hastings, UK.

My work spans theatre, performance, poetry, writing and photography. I have a background in journalism, and storytelling is a commmon theme running throughout my work.

As a PR and communications specialist I support organisations to share their stories in the most impactful way.

I am co-director of community arts organisation Lifesize, artist and mentor at ExploreTheArch theatre company, and member of Babes in Arms, a collective of artist mothers.

Projects

Earthed (2022)


Site specific promenade theatre piece, through which Yasmin Aishah and I explored our mixed heritage, recreating our childhood garden hideouts. Created with Gail Borrow and @PoorlyBeetle at ExploreTheArch theatre company.

Creative workshops


An experienced workshop leader, I deliver creative sessions for children and young people, families, and adults, in community settings and schools. I have facilitated workshops in partnership with Hastings Museum & Art Gallery, De La Warr Pavilion, Corridor, Hastings Thrives, Lifesize, and others. Do get in touch if you have an idea for a project or collaboration.

The Writers Space


Working with Ironclad CIC, I lead monthly sessions for writers at Jubilee Library, Brighton, holding a space for people to come together and work on their own projects in community, offering prompts if needed.
