Born in Barrow, I am keen to see the regeneration and transformation of the once industrial town into a visually pleasing and thriving environment that encompasses its natural beauty and industrial heritage. I am delighted to be working with Art Gene who are pioneering the rise of arts within the area and my role as a trustee enables me to be directly involved in this process by helping them with their work and giving a local perspective. I am passionate about working with young people and involving them with their community and projects where they can make a difference, giving them a voice. As an educator, working with Art Gene gives me the opportunity to create more links to help my students to progress and gain valuable experience working with professional artists and hopefully the young people I work with can bring a fresh perspective to the organisation.
