Three words to describe your practice:

Fun, inclusive, open

Favourite Ignite Imaginations moment/project: 

The Sacred Spaces project in the Abbeydale Corridor where I worked with young people to interview people and photograph their community to explore what locals loved and what they wanted changing. They then created collages reflecting their findings and developed their ideas of what they would put into practice to improve their community. Loads of fun and energy and a brilliant practical outcome at the end!

What inspires you: Seeing how important a cohesive and strong community is for most of us and seeing how so often engaging in something creative increases our confidence and well-being. Seeing people at their best inspires me.
