I am a practicing artist based in Yorkshire, working mainly in printmaking. I teach art to adults and also run community arts projects on a freelance basis with a range of different community groups.

Over the last 30 years I have seen the profound and positive effects of participation in creative projects; practical involvement in the arts enables individuals feel heard, valued and connected, and communities to find strength and a common focus to make constructive changes.

As a trustee it is great to be able to support Skippko as the company continues to develop and serve the community in Leeds and beyond.
