Eleanor Glover - artist        email: eleanor.glover@freeuk.com        Facebook

I am an artist/maker based in Bristol. My passion is to create new ways of expressing personal narrative; casting my own stories through mixed media sculpture, shadow theatre, and book arts, and working therapeutically with adults and children to help them communicate and acknowledge theirs.
