Feel free to contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to talk about a specific project, big or small, that you think I can help with. In terms of rates, my daily fee for consultancy works on a sliding scale, depending on the size and type of organisation. Different rates apply to introductory workshops for botanical illustration, as well as for creating arts-led workshops. I’m also happy to discuss design or fine-art based projects.
If you are a landowner or manager this service could be for you:
I am currently developing a new service aimed specifically at landowners or managers that addresses the ways in which our farming landscape is evolving. If you are working with people in this area, including through volunteering, do get in touch. I’d love to hear from you and co-create methods of evaluating how these changes are perceived and valued. You can find more details below.
In terms of working with you on other ideas, I can help you write into a grant or pitch an idea. I’ve left examples for you below.
If you are a researcher looking for an artist who uses visual methods this is a good example for you to look at:
If you are an organisation that would like an artist to deliver botanical workshops, here is an example for you to read:
If you are an organisation looking for a creative designer who can provide value for money, here's some of my skills:
Teamwork and co-production methods are a priority, and I work closely with project leads, as well as copywriters and photographers.
Illustration plus botanical workshops
Drawing, both observational and expressive, is a core skill that underpins my practice and I use it to develop and communicate ideas, and to share drawing skills.
I am very interested in working with people who are easily ignored. For instance, I have co-produced a workshop with the Hearing Voices Network.
I like to work with schools who address dyslexia, give children time to be in nature and who work with children on bicycles. For example, I have co-produced a workshop with Dave Davies of Sustrans.
This workshop toured children through different woodland zones on their bicycles: they learnt how to check if their bike was ready for a ride; they learnt tree identification skills with Dave Readman from Cotna, and they drew and modelled the woods around them with myself and post-graduate student Ryan Putt. Towards the end of the workshop, fire and hot chocolate greeted them, along with an exhibition of their work. I am currently working with youth groups.
