Some things I've worked on:

Engagement Awards (University of Bath)

Collaborating with artist Megan Clark-Bagnell we dressed the space for the Universities annual engagement awards. I created an interactive installation of a giant neon pencil to encourage participants to 'scribble' their ideas down.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (If Opera)

I designed and delivered costume and prop workshops to engage primary schools and SEN secondary schools in the theatrical adaption of Alice in Wonderland. After the workshops the young people were invited to see and participate in the Operatic performance.

Chain Reaction (We the Curious)

I was commissioned to design bespoke props and contraptions themed around the sustainability development goals decided at COP27. These were used in a Rube Goldberg Machine inspired activity hosted by We the Curious, to get people thinking about how simple small actions can also start a chain reaction towards a healthier planet for us all. The props were lasercut and were designed to create movement when interacted with.

ROAR (Theatre Orchard)

ROAR! is a summer school exploring our relationship with the planet and how we can all have a positive impact on the future. I was commissioned to co-create props and costumes for the parade with the young people. I designed and delivered workshops where we re-imagined the saying "A leopard can't change it's spots", thinking about the changes we can make for a sustainable future. I designed a blank, wooden, leopard prop, that could be carried in the parade, decorated with all the spots of change we created.

Mantras and Mugshots (Spark Somerset, Theatre Orchard and supported by The Community Renewal Fund (CRF))

Co-created project with artist Jasmine Collings. We worked with individuals from across six areas in Somerset to create positive affirmations and unique pieces of art. We explored patterns, visual and written communications and what colours bring individuals joy, later developing these into screenprints. The project was a real celebration of optimism, creative voice and community connection. The Mantras and Mugshots workshop was then developed into an interactive exhibition that was taken on tour across libraries in Somerset in September 2022.

Hidden Health (We The Curious)

Working with three young leaders, University of Bristol PHD students and We the Curious research facilitators, I supported three individual research projects, looking at wellbeing through a young person’s eyes. I supported the development and delivery of the individual projects and then created an interactive exhibition that showed the young people’s findings. The six-month exhibition consisted of soft sculptures, QR quilt and (self) love machine, combining various levels of interactivity, such as the digital, the physical and the exchange, with a goal of improving the participant’s well-being through engagement.

Paradise Puzzle Party (First Art)

I was commissioned to design and host a party where we reimagined creative consultancy and events planning. The aim was to invite the public to plan their perfect party through the creation of a gigantic puzzle picture.

|October 2021

Picture This (North Somerset Council)

A series of printmaking workshops co-lead with Artist Jasmine Collings. The aim was to create a manifesto for a carbon neutral North Somerset, through the creation of various artworks which resulted in a wheat-paste parade/poster campaign. We achieved this through several community-based workshops to gather ideas and designs for the creation of the wheat paste prints from the participants.

|August – October 2021

Future Radicals (Theatre Orchard)

A series of workshops helping the young people of Southville to challenge the notion of “Adults Know Best” to ‘re-design’ their town. Resulting in a cardboard city window shop display and parade.

|July – August 2021

-Love and Pride (Weston Art Space)

Working with the LGBTQ+ artist collective “Let’s Get Visible”, I co-created a window installation for PRIDE WEEK with the text “LOVE AND PRIDE” in the centre of Western-Super-Mare and various icons and symbols and it to represent the different members.

|June 2021

-Paradise Found Exhibitions (Locations in Tower Hill and Shoreditch, London)

Self-organised and funded group exhibitions collating points of view of paradise during the pandemic. I combined my community and personal work to create props and an installation that the public could participate in.

|May – July 2021

-Build Paradise Where You Are (Weston Art Space)

A Paradise/Utopian inspired installation in a disused shop window with the mantra “BUILD PARADISE WHERE YOU ARE” at the centre. Made entirely out of decorated cardboard as a nod to how you can reimagine what already exists around you in a utopian lens. The imagery was a combination of iconic “holiday” symbols with landmarks specific to Weston-Super-Mare.

|April 2021

I support facilitated (and lead sections) of this six month course aimed at helping young neurodivergent adults gain insight and skills in the creative sector.

-Rules Don't Apply Here (Royal Shakespeare Company)

As Artist Assistant to Megan Clark-Bagnell, I created props and artwork for a large commission with the Royal Shakespeare Company.
