North West, United Kingdom
Faith’s sculptural practice initially stemmed from being born with cerebral palsy, a disability that made her curious about how humans and animals move. Being a Black British, woman artist from a Jamaican, West African heritage also influences her creative output.
She has extensive experience of devising and leading 3D art workshops with primary, secondary schools and SEND settings. The activities are tailored to the age and ability of participants, working with recycled materials either individually or in groups. She also delivers CPD sessions for teachers. She is a member of United Black Art Educators, NSEAD.

Experience in Schools
Faith has worked with children and young people in schools across the UK and the North West in particular, for over 25 years. Her partnership projects involve engaging with schools, youth and community groups; local authorities and cultural organisations, as she enjoys working with people to encourage and develop their creativity. For these schools and community projects she re-uses waste paper and other waste materials to create sustainable temporary artworks.
