I am a human with strong legs, a good imagination and I really like the idea of humans not smashing the Earth to pieces. This means I go on lots of walks, engage in various creative activities including making art, and get involved with lots of conservation and environmental action, projects and behaviours.
I am currently exploring how local environmental protection projects bring personal benefits, community cohesion, and employment to those involved. I’m also interested in how and if the creatives amongst us can be a vital part of this.
I am also beginning a new job as a Communications and Community Engagement Officer for the Forestry Commission, working on a 5 year culture, environment and heritage project for the Forest of Dean. Hopefully all of my thinking and exploring over the past six years or so will be of some great use there!
