I believe in the power of supported conversation which finds creative ways to move issues forward.

I love to create space in my life to write and make art. You will find some of my work here - check out my shop.
For the past few years, I have been working on illustrating two children's books. It has been fun!
This picture book was developed for Matariki: The Naughtiest Stars.
My first run has sold out, now is available as a downloadable pdf renamed 'The Rascally Stars.'
'Finding Grandpa's Song' supports children to gain an understanding of what dementia is, and how they can support their loved ones living with dementia.
Finding Grandpa's Song has been printed and will be for sale soon! Watch this space!

'Make a Splash' is an interactive hands-on art journal aimed at 10-15 year-olds who struggle.
Topics include: Being Wonderfully You, The Power of Apology, Changing those Non Helpful Inner Vows, Self-harm,
Stigma, At-Risk Friends, Daring to Dream, and much more.
Make a Splash invites the reader to explore issues using collage, paint, and print. I offer light but thoughtful inquiry.
Make a Splash is currently in the editing stage, and will soon be going to print and be available in pdf format.
