ARTS AND HERITAGE PRODUCER
I am an accomplished creative arts producer with over 25 years of experience working within visual arts and heritage organisations. I have extensive experience in working with children and young people on creative projects.
Originally trained as a textile designer, I have continued my creative practice whilst working in Museums and Galleries.
Clients include the National Portrait Gallery, Wellcome Collection, Kew Gardens and the Foundling Museum.
In need of some advice on how to expand or develop your family offer? Looking to engage a team of volunteers to deliver your programme? I can offer a consultancy package or devise a bespoke arts programme to suit your needs.
Artists in Schools
I can create bespoke, innovative arts projects and artist in residency programmes for children from EYFS to KS3 - with a cross-curricular approach or a focus on a particular topic. Drawing on a team of experienced freelance artists we can provide workshops in sound, animation, sculpture, textiles, ceramics, drawing and photography. All artists have an enhanced DBS.
I have extensive experience in creating high-quality resources for exhibitions. Working with well-known children’s illustrators I can write content or offer a project.
I am a motivated Project Manager with experience of managing freelance staff and volunteers. I have collaborated with designers and illustrators to produce exhibitions and catalogues as well as devising event programmes for a range of audiences.
