Informed by her training in art photography, Genevieve works using mixed-media approaches including photography, textiles, and printmaking. Her inspiration is drawn from the natural world, through exploring botanical forms, working directly with plants, or utilising recycled and natural materials. Within this, she explores themes of time and seasonality.
Alongside her own arts practice, Genevieve leads community participatory arts projects. She believes that engaging the arts can have beneficial effects on health and overall quality of life, whilst being enjoyable and expansive in its own right. Genevieve has been commissioned to facilitate participatory arts projects within care and nursing homes, supported housing, day centres, youth clubs, and with mental health service users.
She has been awarded funding from UnLtd (2015) and Norfolk County Council’s Arts Project Fund (2017) to deliver self-initiated community arts projects. In 2017, Genevieve was awarded a place at Clore’s Emerging Leaders residential.
Alongside formal art photography training, Genevieve attends regular professional development courses. This has previously included Behaviour Management and Youth Arts (2012) and Reminscence Arts in Dementia Care (2013). She is also an Arts Award Advisor at Bronze & Silver levels (2017).
Genevieve is 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.
