Lisa Buttery

Lisa Buttery

Artist in Residence

Hi, I’m a young person and I’ve been volunteering with boingboing for over 4 years and I have recently been employed by boingboing. I've helped to produce various resources including – The ‘Mental Health and the Resilient Therapy Toolkit’ and the ‘Visual arts practice for resilience: A guide for working with young people with complex needs’. I also provided some illustrations for the ‘Kinship Carers’ Resource: Using Resilience Ideas in Practice’ guide. Artistic Co-curator of the Resilience House for the Connected Communities Showcase event in Cardiff in June/July 2014 was also a busy role that fell to me.

I originally became involved with boingboing through Experience in Mind (an organisation that delivered training and produced resources to raise awareness of mental health issues in young people).

Through boingboing I have been involved in a number of videos and have given many presentations at various events from a conference in a massive lecture theatre at the University of Brighton to a meeting room at Newport Mind in Cardiff.

My artwork is an important way of coping with my mental health issues and I have designed illustrations for resources, posters, cushion covers and cards.

I am really enjoying my role as an artist in residence for boingboing. It should provide some more creative opportunities down the line.
