I'd love to hear from you!

I'm a human octopus and a Mum of 3, which I think go hand in hand!I'm able to multi-task and think and make sure all of the boring stuff is taken care of (I actually love it!)I'm creatively interested in how art connects us to our humanity and movement as medicineI strive for universal accessibility in everything I do and would love to connect if this sounds like your bag too!I'm available for performance, facilitation and production work.Images thanks to Dean Leivers and David Wilson Clarke
