Megan Dowsett is a freelance creative consultant working with museums and galleries.

Through the name Norris and the Flamingo, she shares the sense of adventure that runs through all of life, wherever we are on our journey. A sense of imagination, of possibility and discovery, for children and adults alike.

Her core values come down to two simple things:

People: At the heart of everything she does, people are there – be it audiences of any age or background, volunteers, staff or freelancers and apprentices. She believes that the best projects take everybody with them on a learning journey.

Creativity: In every role she’s taken, creativity has played a key priority. Working in Museums and Galleries, creativity brings a valuable opportunity to think about the same things in a different way.

Museums and galleries are the perfect place to bring the joy of discovery and magic of adventure to everyone who passes through the doors - and to invite those who haven't yet braved these sometimes intimidating buildings, to do so in a dynamic and inviting way.

Over twelve years working in these exciting settings, Megan has developed extensive experience in both managing and delivering creative projects that engage with a wide variety of audiences.

That Book For Feets

IMG_7490Quite some time ago I promised to share the rest of the book that we'd made for our daughter. And then I got stuck on trying to convert the bizarrely formatted PDFs that I'd scanned them with, and distracted by making a skirt and trying to catch up sleep. Etc. But here at last is the whole book, beginning to end. And she loves it! Phew.

Cover I wanted to free myself from my ambitious, perfectionist streak, so I got ALL the materials off the shelf and had a jolly good play! I really enjoyed myself. Less satisfied with my characters,which I think Liam has done beautifully. Perhaps next time, we'll combine in a different way and I'll do the background and Liam can do all the characters ... Intro Gran Gramps Terry and Jen Kath and Tarik Joey All together Me2
NB: This last page has a mirror. For a long time Feets would push past all the toher pages just to get to the mirror and admire herself. Don't know where she gets her vanity from!

A Few Little Doodles

Thanks Mum Since the days for using brain power seem to be few and far between at the moment, I've taken to doodling with the lovely set of felt pens Grandad gave me for my birthday. These a few of the greetings cards that have emerged. Hello Monkey Green
