Last month I was asked to capture a virtual live event with a cohort of young people who are working within the heritage sector.

I work mainly as a visual minute taker at live events and my background is in theatre and illustration. I also screen print my own prints. I like smile-in-the-mind imagery, thoughtful, playful, eye-catching.
