   I create abstract stone sculptures inspired by plants.  I am a passionate advocate for the therapeutic power of touch and the act of making as communication and self-expression.  My mission is to protect biodiversity and help to build creative, compassionate communities through the power of making.

 Community Arts and Education Projects
1988 – 2020As part of ‘Nature on the Line,’ I taught stone carving to adults suffering from isolation or mental health challenges in Coventry and Warwickshire.  I have a wide experience of residencies and workshops involving children and adults from many backgrounds. Groups I have co-ordinated include adult education students and staff, young people, prison inmates, countryside rangers, conservation volunteers, visually handicapped adults, school groups, Sikh and Afro-Carribean residents groups, and people with learning difficulties. I have also worked with  theatre and dance groups on stage sets, props and costumes, and provided INSET days for teachers. Past clients have included Forest Enterprise, Kent County Council, the Fieldfare Trust, London Borough of Sutton, Mole valley Arts, Arts in Medway, Medway Council, Southampton City Council, Easington District Council, The Prison Service, the Workers’ Education Association and the National Trust.
