Is anArtist, Filmmaker/Animator and HCPC registered Art Therapist.
He has a particular interest in stories and personal narrative and this is reflected in both his own films and those made with participants in prisons, secure units, mental health settings and centres for asylum seekers where he has been running animation and narrative projects for the past 12 years. In this time he has made over 30 short films with prisoners and patients many of which have won Koestler awards. The projects give participants the opportunity to tell their story in their own way thereby enabling them to take back control of their narrative and challenge stigma and prejudice.
He is an artist in his own right and makes films, artist books, installations as well as well as painting and drawing.
He also runs Animated Tales providing CPD animation and story-making courses to health and education professionals, service users, artists and anyone who wants to tell a story.
