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 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 runs community participatory arts groups. She is driven by a commitment to engage communities who wouldn’t ordinarily be able to access arts & culture. 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.
Alongside formal art photography training, Genevieve attends regular training and courses. This has previously included behaviour management in youth arts, and using 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.
