About

Living and working in Norfolk, UK
2008-2011: BA hons Photographic Arts, University of Westminster

Informed by her training in art photography, Genevieve works using mixed-media techniques combining photography, textiles, drawing and printmaking. Her inspiration is drawn from the natural world, through exploring botanical forms, working directly with plants, or utilising recycled and natural materials. Alongside her own arts practice, she runs community participatory arts groups and is available for collaboration or commission locally.

With an active interest in ‘arts and health’, Genevieve has been commissioned to facilitate participatory arts projects within care and nursing homes, supported housing, day centres, youth clubs, and community groups. Aiming to boost wellbeing through creative activity, she works in a collaborative way, in particular with those living with long-term health conditions such as mental illness, disability and addictions.

Alongside formal art photography training, Genevieve attends regular training and courses. This has previously included Bookbinding (Book Works, London, 2009), Printmaking (Kensington & Chelsea College, London, 2012), Behaviour Management in Youth Arts (Artswork, London, 2013), Drawing (Slade School of Fine Art, London, 2013), and Reminiscent Arts in Dementia Care (European Reminiscence Network, London, 2013).

Genevieve is also a member of Artists’ Union England, holds up-to-date Public and Products Liability Insurance and recent DBS checks. Plus, she has additional training in safeguarding children and vulnerable adults.
