Hello and welcome. We are inclusive arts practitioners from Milton Keynes. As well as having our own artistic practice we share a passion for inclusive, trauma informed community work. We have been married since 2012, we have two adopted children and two scruffy dogs. Below is a little bit about us and our work.
After graduating with a degree in Classical Drama and Creative Writing Alice went onto work in several theatre companies and walk about outdoor shows. This led on to an interest in outdoor performance, street performance and outdoor art. Alice has created work that has been exhibited in galleries, art centres and large scale outdoor festivals. Alice currently works as an associate artist for MK Gallery and The Royal Academy of Art, working with children and young people with complex needs. She is a studio holder at Arts Central MK where she enjoys creating new work. Alice is currently training with Nose to Nose clowning company to complete her clowning studies.

The work we do together
The work we do together is driven by a mindful approach, being in the moment of whatever art form we are enjoying. The work we create usually draws inspiration from human connections as well as the relationships we have with the world around us. Our joint practice aims to collaborate on skills and experience to create work around subjects of feminism, body image and mental health. Our installations allow for collective mindfulness with audiences, and we often host workshops for all ages throughout the year so keep an eye on our social media platforms for updates.
