Hi! I am Lisette

Creative life story work logo

I’m an artist and a writer – I say I do stuff with words. I work with them in lots of different ways: I’m an author, a poet, a spoken word performer, a theatre and film maker, and a maker of paper things.

I live in Darlington with my rescue dog, Harper Lee, who has shorter legs at the front so she’s always going downhill! I love the sea and rivers, reading, doodling, writing stories and making things from paper.

I also love meeting new people and helping them do stuff with words too.

By taking part in the All About Me Creative Experiences with me you will have the chance to make and decorate a special bookcase with a hidden compartment containing miniature books.

Our sessions will also include doodling, making lots of different things out of paper and felt, and drawing ‘don’t-look-down’ portraits, plus lots, lots more.

Although we are going to work in unique and interesting ways with words, I want you to know that I don’t care at all about spelling or grammar!

This is all about using creativity and fun to find out the things that are important to you. You can share as much or as little as you want – that’s always completely up to you.

What will we do together in our All About Me Creative Experience sessions?

We will be thinking about things such as:

  • Who are you?
  • What are your favourite things?
  • How do you feel?
  • Who is in your life?
  • Who do you live with?
  • What plans do you have for the future?

These sessions are all to do with things that are important to you. You will have the chance to create some unique things to keep, like a dreamcatcher full of hopes and wishes for the future, a framed doodle letter, some spoken word, felt puppets, a jar of stars, a worry pebble, and your wooden book with its hidden secrets.

There will be other children too, as well as your trusted adult, who you can share your ideas with. You can make, create, explore and share as much or as little as you like.

I am really looking forward to meeting you and learning more about you and your ideas.

My sessions will be suitable for children and young people aged 11-13 or 14-17.

See you soon!
