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.

Wendy Horler

IMG_8621Wendy and I have been meeting for years to encourage, inspire, critique and support our creative journeys. We both strive (and lets be honest, often struggle) to discipline ourselves into more regular drawing habits, but Wendy can't long resist returning to three dimensions.

She's absorbed by the things she collects from her garden, but lately she's been exploring papier mache using toilet paper. Well, you know my love of toilet roll tubes ... perhaps it was predictable that I'd be fascinated by her toilet roll adventures!

IMG_8632She always seems to come up with magical abstract shapes. I love the different shades of one colour and the simple structures built by putting together. There's something very soothing about the simple shapes from the textured material. IMG_8622
And each structure is reminiscent of something different - a ship, twigs and leaves ... any thoughts?!
