I like to create spaces for stories to unfold. Places for atmosphere and magic to surface, allowing the spirit of the work, space to breathe.

This was my interactive Story Teepee for the Arts Festival, passers by were invited to come inside the teepee and tell the shaman 'Bin Man' a story, which was recorded by a video camera in Bin Mans mouth.

The Story Teepee was a place to share stories of strength

"Come inside, share something, be part of our story"

The Shaman 'Bin Man' is the keeper of stories and the sharer of strength. War paint was offered to the participants as they left the space as a gift and symbol of their courage to take forwards on their journey.

My painting journey, a visual story of me finding my strength and the spirit animals that guided my journey.

My painting journey was positioned around the edges of the teepee walls for my audience to view before sitting down to tell their own story of a time when they felt strong.

Bin Man stood strong at the back of the teepee waiting for participants to share a story with him.

Bin Man said " Welcome, feel free to have a look around, take a seat if you wish. My name is Bin Man, guardian of stories and sharer of strength. Please tell me of a time when you've been super strong. In return I grant you forever strength and magical war paint as you leave the teepee.

In the works below I was  contemplating the idea of the Divine Feminine,  the goddess and the sacredness of the female.
I was exploring movement and the traces and marks we leave in the world on our journey.

In this series I wanted to create a feeling of a sacred journey for the female figure that appears out of the strands of red light in the dark woodland.
