Hi, I'm Milly
About My Work
I am a creative learning practitioner using reflective, playful, collaborative tools rooted in the visual and performing arts. I invite community groups and working teams to ground themselves in authenticity, expand their perspective and work their creative muscles in a caring and collaborative environment. I cultivate curiosity and inclusivity amongst groups and between individuals.
My work can serve multiple purposes
supporting people to reconnect with core purpose, set mindful intentions and enhance their self awareness in their lives and work
supporting people to discover a greater sense of play and joyful connection in their lives and work
supporting skills development from exploration of leadership styles to inclusive team collaboration
supporting the development of live, interactive or curated artistic experiences

More About Me
I have been a freelancer since the beginning of my career and love the diversity of the work I do. I appreciate the consistent opportunities to expand and share my skills, the chance to regularly widen my worldview, and the privilege to connect with such a wide range of people and places in the process
I am always excited by the opportunity to travel and experience different places, environments and cultures - both across the UK and Internationally
I began properly developing my visual art focused practice in 2020 during Covid lockdown. I reintroduced myself to the world at the end of a pen and a paintbrush, and the possibilities of using both physical and digital materials to build exciting visual worlds and express imaginative ideas. I haven't looked back!
I regularly invest time in my personal and professional development to increase my skills and knowledge. I'm a part of the Sadler Heath network, engaged in the Co-Creating with Communities Course with 64 Million Artists and I am a member of the Inky Goodness Collective for illustrators and designers.
I am an 'introverted extrovert' (although who really needs the label). I feel it means I gain positive energy from both the space to connect and vibe with people socially and professionally, and I also highly value space to reflect in my own time and work on my own personal development to recharge
I am a balance of both silly and sincere. Personally and professionally, I can be relied upon to inject humour and playfulness when it's encouraged and provide genuine care and guidance when it's most needed. I pride myself on this greatly.
I have actively engaged with inclusive and diverse communities throughout my youth and my adult working life, with particular gratitude to and acknowledgment of Chickenshed Theatre, a organisation that enabled me to consistently engage with and celebrate diverse perspective and people with a wide range of lived experience. As such I will always carry a mindfulness of how I can contribute to and encourage inclusivity across working sectors and social spaces on both a small and larger scale.
I live in (and I am from) North London
I studied Drama at UEA in Norwich, UK from 2012-2015
With this original background in drama, I have experience of performing and devising theatre shows. I especially loved exploring clowning and physical theatre as part of my training, and this comes through in my facilitation style and approach today!
