I work part time as an Art Facilitator, and I am part of a dedicated Creative Learning Team at Angus Council responsible for devising and delivering high quality, engaging arts and cultural programmes within the context of schools and the wider community.

I was recently invited to join the V&A Dundee as a creative professional in the summer of 2014, to help plan and develop their first community engagement project ‘Living Room for the City’. With my passion for interiors, spaces, places, people and communities, this project was a great opportunity to combine these elements and encourage the participants to realise their potential as designers, by getting stuck into a real hands on experience of creating personalised ‘illuminated objects’ to take away and transform their homes across Dundee.

As part of Wasps opened studios 2014, Linsey and I were brought on board to design and facilitate a free drop in creative workshop to Meadow Mill Studios, Dundee. We’re both creative professionals and graduates of the Interior & Environmental Design course at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. ¬†Entitled: Please Excuse Our Mess: Workspace in Progress invited visitors of all ages to drop in and collaboratively create a temporary spatial installation that reflected their visions for an ideal creative workspace.
