Lily is an artist and activist.

Lily’s practice has an environmental and mental health focus, combining activism with making skills to work with different communities in a creative and collective way. Employing a variety of techniques to produce functional objects made entirely from waste materials, her processes provide a way for her to forge creative and empowering relationships with others. Lily aims to improve mental health in the communities she works with and to inspire people to see waste materials in a new way, providing them with the skillsets they need to make items that can have use and purpose in their own lives.
