Projects
  • Student Mental Health workshops
    Student Mental Health workshopsWorking with a group of 11 students from BA Graphic Design (Manchester School of Art) through a series of workshops I devised to explore their experiences of mental health whilst at university. After a discussion, the artworks were co-created between each student and myself through drawing conversations about a range of issues that came up. This project was a commissioned by the Wellcome Trust to illustrate Anna Lewis’ article about the student mental health crisis, published on Mosaic Science

  • Anonymous Letters (Studio Tej)
    Anonymous Letters (Studio Tej)An audio installation of short, unsigned letters installed as listening stations in the London YMCA Central building.

    Pioneering Places workshopsExploring a child-led process with Year 3 pupils at Ramsgate Arts Primary School, centring on Ramsgate Harbour.

Over the course of the school year, this evolved to become a collaboration with the children, pushing ideas of art, the place they live and how it is experienced.
  • Welcome to Mitcham (Studio Tej)
    Welcome to Mitcham (Studio Tej)Studio Weave & Merton Council commission to paint a 30m stretch of fence to welcome people to Mitcham and direct to the town centre. Our initial idea centred around the well-used, beautiful allotment that lies on the other side of the fence. Research we did with allotment owners gave us a wealth of knowledge and information that led us to make a hand-painted seasonal food chart containing as much of this as possible. A Studio Tej project.
