Junky Monkey art using natural and recycled materials


Junky Monkey art using natural and recycled materials

Since 1997 I have been artist, illustrator and maker. I have a B.A., Graphics and M.A. in visual communication and have taught in further /adult education. In the last 7yrs my specialism has been in using natural,recycled/reclaimed materials and willow weaving. In 2006 I became involved as a community artist, running ethical arts workshops, encouraging people to think about our environment. I set up Junky Monkey arts and I regularly work in community/school settings with all ages.
