Profile

I have always loved art and being an artist, but it can be a lonely and competitive job. Working as a support worker or peer worker, balances this out, because I love being around people, and helping others when I can. I have found in my own life that creativity: art and music and writing and acting and whatever else you got, is one of the best medicines to be found.

Hobbies Interests and Passions

During Covid lockdown and since, I have replaced regular catch-ups with friends over boardgames with online multiplayer gaming. We don’t take it too seriously, mostly its just a way to socialise without socialising. I also have grown to love weekends when the family gets together. I am currently enjoying every Friday volunteering at Art From The Margins, a program run by The Wesley Mission.

Recent Career History

March 2020- September 2020. Bespoke. Support Worker and Driver. Mostly driving client to appointments, some house cleaning.

March 2018- October 2019. Ripple Effect Art Program. Art Mentor. Mentored a young artist with several difficulties. Studied basic Auslan to communicate.
