It all started when…
I wanted to combine my visual arts practice with a caring profession and imagined that becoming an art therapist could be a way of doing this.
After completing my training at MIECAT, the Melbourne Institute for Experiential and Creative Arts Therapy, I began developing my art therapy practice ‘Creative Cels’ offering therapeutic art making workshops.
In collaboration with participants, I guide a arts based inquiry process that seeks to further understand our moments of significance.
This approach is a gentle one that can be spontaneous, emergent, playful, and full of possibilities.
As a sculptor I apply a creative inquiry process to my art making, representing moments that have stood out for me and sculpting them in clay.
As a practicing artist I exhibit and sell my art work through various exhibitions throughout the year.
