Georgina Evans is an artist and qualified Art Therapist. Born in Nigeria and being of mixed heritage, Evans’ creative practice involves a process of self-enquiry, exploring ideas relating to how our identity is shaped by conscious and unconscious influences.

She is adept at linking themes explored by therapists to those highlighted in PSHE lessons.
