I’m a performance director, musician, visual artist & workshop facilitator with 50 years experience of creating theatre & dance as well as running workshops for people of all ages & backgrounds.
I’ve worked mostly in the North of England and other parts of the UK and Europe in nurseries, schools, colleges, community centres, communities, festivals & theatres.
I play sitar, saxophones, djembe, hoop drum & percussion. My work as a musician has included creating & performing original musical accompaniment for theatre & dance performances. I also create musical support for yoga, ceremony & ritual theatre.
For the past 50 years I’ve created mandalas using a variety of media including watercolour, ink, pencil, crayons, acrylics as well as digital mandalas from my own photos of the natural world. I create transient sculptural mandalas on beaches & in woods.
My website www.naturemandala.com has more information and images about my work.
I have a regular Tai Chi/Qi Gong and Mindfulness practice.
I collaborate with Sally on workshops and retreats using music, ritual theatre & mandala to weave in with her teaching of yoga & mindfulness.
