Heloise (pronouns – she/her) is a multi-disciplinary artist and facilitator who works in galleries, healthcare settings and the public realm. Heloise has been working creatively with diverse communities since 2005; from carnival making in Welsh ex-mining communities to memorial art-work with South Indian school children following the Boxing Day Tsunami of 2006.

Heloise has organised and contributed to several art events nationally and internationally and has exhibited at the BAFTA accredited Aesthetica Film Festival. Heloise often has collaboration at the core of her practice, be that with members of the public, students or professionals from other fields. Heloise has recently created a video piece with her family exploring ideas around dance and movement across the life-cycle. She is also currently working with a musician to run multi-sensory art sessions for wellbeing for older adults. This year Heloise will be further researching how a profound relationship with the material world (such as art objects) can support us to communicate with each other.
