Sheena is an art therapist, painter, and printmaker with an additional background in further education. Throughout her career, she has worked with children and adults in schools, hospitals, and prisons.
She discusses these systems at large and shares excerpts from her time in each of them. She also touches on her own work as an art therapist, funding, and the impact she has seen art therapy have on all different types of people.
“I think the thing I do love about art therapy is that … it’s an approach alongside another person… we work with whatever people bring into the room, and however, they choose to use the art materials.”
“We can’t always put our feelings into words. We need other languages and that’s what the arts are. That’s why it’s so important that they’re properly funded.”
