I’ve honed a wide range of skills across many projects and in partnership with many organisations. Please contact me for a resume or to discuss your idea. All my work prioritises Diversity and Inclusion. I’m fully insured and certified.
I run inclusive, safe creative workshops for a range of mediums such as inks, paints, books and zine making, writing, poetry, and small sculpture.
These can be specific to a particular community (such as a mental health support group in prison), or to a project such as an inclusive community engagement process.
NDIS Support Work & Mentoring
Previously employed by community organisations such as Uniting SA, I’m now an Independent Support Worker. I’m a qualified Mental Health Peer Worker and specialise in supporting adults with diverse identities and experiences, including LGBTIQA+, neurodiversity, trauma and ‘severe and enduring mental illness’.
I offer both in person and online chat/email/video support, can provide casual or once off support (for example for a distressing medical procedure), and can accept private non-NDIS clients, build capacity via training other family and support workers, and provide support to professional staff.
Learn more here. I am your ally in your goals to create more safety, diversity, and inclusion. I can create ‘no stupid questions’ safe spaces, speak to boards, support accreditation processes, and provide staff training.
For community engagement I champion the use of peer based experience, I can support you to engage, recruit, train, and utilise diverse lived experience in your projects and workforce. I also offer support with design/co-design, facilitation, writing, and research.
Speaking, Training, Workshops, Board Representation
Learn more here. My work is founded on the values of Resilience and Diversity. I blend considerable personal and professional expertise in these areas:
- Neurodiversity esp autism, giftedness, and multiplicity
- Mental health including eating disorders, attachment, psychosis, dissociation, multiplicity, self care, wellbeing, resilience and caring
- Trauma recovery including childhood trauma, medical trauma, family violence, and adverse childhood experiences
- Social determinants of health including poverty, homelessness, isolation, community development and rehabilitation
Please inquire about a licence to use one of my artworks, or to commission new illustrations for your project. I specialise in editorial work and unique health engagement. I’m experienced with illustrations for power point style presentations, community engagement projects, and print media. Here’s an example of a collection of my illustrations commissioned for a large consultation project by a Govt dept.
Art Exhibitions, Residencies, and Projects
I can bring an exhibition or art collection on a theme to your workplace or community to complement your conference, or start an important conversation in a human and engaging way. This can be as comprehensive as a full exhibition of original works, or as easy as a pop up exhibition of digital images on a slide show.
I can partner with you as an Artist in Residence, to develop a new art work or body of art as a reflection on interviews and community engagement.
I can support your community to develop their own art through my creative workshops.
