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 for 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 and disability.
Alongside formal art photography training, Genevieve attends regular training and courses. This has previously included book-binding, drawing, printmaking, behaviour management in youth arts, and reminiscent arts in dementia care.
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.
