About

I am a fun career Creative with many hats - community artist, facilitator, sketch noter, interactive designer, mural artist, creative therapist, fine artist practitioner, eco-warrior..... My focus is on connecting people through art and crusading for creativity as a community catalyst.​

Experienced Creative with many years experience of community creative projects and facilitation. With a vivid background in many creative industries, I have a vast resource of knowledge and enthusiasm for visual art as a catalyst for change and for communication between cultures.


Founder of Lincoln Art Ninjas (2016) to combine eco-therapy with being more creative while combatting loneliness. Small projects make creating so much more acccessible and counteracts creative anxiety. Being creative in every-day ways is the secret to health and well-being.

To support this I run a vibrant community interest company called ActiviTea CIC.
