I do all sorts of creative things!
My work is a mixture of performing, writing, making, comedy, playing, planning, designing, painting... throughout my work there is a thread of performance and storytelling.
I have a degree in Theatre Practice and I've been working professionally in the arts since about 2002. I've worked with various theatre companies on original productions and I have produced a series of productions and community events myself.
I have about 20 years of experience in working with children through my roles as play leader, teaching assistant and arts facilitator in schools, children's centres and play schemes. I love to play and sing, dance, tell stories, play guitar, make things and enjoy using puppets in my work too.
I manage my own arts projects for all ages alongside working on commissions.
Commissions include murals, illustration, songwriting, productions, recordings, and designing and running all sorts of creative sessions.
In 2016 I was funded by Croydonites Festival of New Theatre to write and perform a one woman stage play inspired by record breaking pilot, Amy Johnson. This is one of the best things I have ever done. I'm working towards a national tour with an accompanying workshops programme.
For ages 12+ the play is available to book to visit theatres, schools and colleges.
A brand new children's show inspired by one of my songs. Especially suitable for babies and very young children. This show is available to book to visit theatres and early years settings.
CURRENT regular work includes Storytime and Music Time sessions for babies and young children as well as term time Storyplay sessions. Storyplay is a structured story based session for schools that I run for children who need support developing confidence and interpersonal skills.
