Hi 

My name is Joni and I'm a Freelance Creative.

After years of answering "So what do you do?" with a variety of answers I was still trying to figure out what I do.

It was my husband that first called me this and it seemed to encapsulate everything I do, I've done and will probably ever do. I work creatively with everything and anything I do.

I specialise in performing, theatre-making, puppetry, working with biography, workshops, research, using my hands... I tend to just give anything a go with an open mind and an open heart.

Most of my work focuses on mental health having lived with Generalise Anxiety Disorder since I was 11. I'm all about honesty, awareness, curiosity and starting conversation.

All I want is to make lives easier, tell stories seldom told and maybe find something beautiful amongst it.
