I am an artist-researcher investigating how drawing and mark-making can be better used within multispecies worlds or ‘common worlds’ research and environmental education.
I have always drawn and believe in the power of drawing and mark-making as a both a personal and universal language of expression available to every age. I have worked in a range of environmental education settings and delivered workshops to all ages and abilities, whilst also exhibiting my drawings in a number of group and solo exhibitions. I hold masters degrees in both Social Sciences (environmental decision making and ethics) and Drawing for Fine Art Practice. It is the combination of these two passions that has led to my current practice-based PhD journey with Portsmouth University “Minibeasts, mark-making and me: Contemporary embodied drawing approaches to multispecies worlds”.
