BIO

I have been a practicing and exhibiting artist for approximately 25
years, working in sculpture, painting and film. I am an award winning
film maker and my first directed short film was selected at Cannes and
Raindance film festivals in 2012. A short documentary art film I
completed in 2017, that explores Romani identity and societal racism,
titled The Baby and the Snake, won best short documentary in the London
Independent Film Awards. In 2005 I qualified as an art psychotherapist
and have since specialised in working with women and marginalised
communities, founding the feminist arts therapy charity Outskirts in
2015. In 2012 I founded and now co direct Sweet ‘Art, an intersectional
feminist arts organisations based in London, England. We support artists
whom are marginalised in the art world and have curated and hosted over
30 arts exhibitions, events and projects that explore important social
issues. I have been a visiting lecturer on London based art
psychotherapy MA trainings since 2014, and specialise in explorations of
issues of racism, power, privilege, prejudice, and intersectional
thinking. My publications have been well received including my most
recent in the International Journal of Art Therapy, that addresses
issues of white privilege in art therapy practice in the UK. I have just
fulfilled a publishing contract with Jessica Kingsley Publishers in
writing and co editing a book titled Intersectionality in the Art
Psychotherapies, to be pub
