“Creative Minds exists to bring joy to the lives of vulnerable people, children and communities enriching their lives through art and creativity. We want to support and enable people of all ages and abilities to explore their creativity and enjoy creating art through our proven approach and methods delivered in our Art Sessions.”
“As a child I loved to draw, paint and be messy, and not much has changed. I followed a traditional art education journey achieving a diploma, and then I pursued a love for creating characters as a Professional Make up artist for TV and film. After qualifying I worked on low budget projects around the country, developing my understanding for 3D design, mask making and sculpture.
What has always interested me as an artist is expression and process, interpreting ideas and emotions visually. I have always been drawn towards mixed media merging traditional techniques to create something with depth and texture. I love to be tactile and repurpose tools like painting a portrait using glue sticks or old credit cards.
Recently my inspiration has shifted after having my son. He made me realise how accessible art is – there are no rules or restrictions. Watching how much fun he has discovering new skills is hugely rewarding.
The training Creative Minds has given me has been so beneficial. I’m so happy to be a part of such a welcoming community of Artists, who share the same values. The shadowing session was fantastic. It really gave me a great insight into what being a part if Creative Minds is all about. I felt in my element and excited to get more involved.”
“As someone with a very diverse set of life experiences across three continents I am passionate about the importance of creativity in everyone’s journey. I believe that ‘doing’ is fundamental to human happiness and that’s why I am so excited to be part of the Creative Minds team bringing art experiences to people who can really benefit from it. Having worked in different creative roles, I found the Creative Minds approach and training a breath of fresh air where everyone keeps the importance of the social impact of our work in mind.”
“I hope to make a difference to all our service users and further strengthen the reputation of the team as a great way to enrich people’s lives. My focus will be to deliver a high quality experience to the participants, to deliver trouble-free service and excellent support to the Activity Coordinators and as a consequence be appreciated as great value by the client. Quality, Service and Value. Simple.”
