Amanda Miles  
A personal image for Amanda Miles I never wear stickers with my name on... but here goes. I've trained as an actor with E15 and with Desmond Jones. I love melding drama work with nature, poetry, storytelling and visual art. I have years of workshop leading and directing  experience. I'm a qualified teacher. My credits in both film and theatre include the feature film "Crust" alongside Kevin McNally and a six foot giant boxing prawn - do ask! I admire lots of people including most children I know, Augusto Boal, the Playback Theatre community, Rowan Williams, Jo Wilding and all who worked with her in Circus2Iraq. I try to keep moving outside of my comfort zone. I am a creative co-ordinator for Breathing Space.


Rob Miles  
A personal image for Rob Miles I am also a Breathing Space creative co-ordinator. Having buried myself in computers for more years than I would like to remember, I am now making up for lost time. I have trained as an actor, my performances range from Petruccio (Shakespeare) to Robin Hood (Pantomime - with tights - don't ask). I have also written several stage and screen plays. I care passionately about trade justice as well as peace and justice issues.

Other Artists

Becca Brewin
Becca specialises in movement and also coordinates a meditation group in South London.

Frankie Coventry
The first images I drew were animals, endless stick horses covering scraps of begged for paper or the spare pages from old diaries. My love of them has grown as I've grown older, hopefully not too sentimental, certainly more respectful. I have always been more interested in representing the small rather than the landscape. I am fascinated by the perfection of seed, berry, shell, fur and feather - and what's behind those beautiful, direct eyes... that "little flicker or spirit"... after all, we are all animals.

Pam Pott   
A personal image for Pam Pott Listen and enjoy! This was my experience when I first came across storytelling in 1998 at Greenbelt Arts Festival, having designed and installed the venue. It changed my life! My story before that included a Manchester childhood then folksinger, teacher, wife, mother to 3, artist, designer and poet. My son describes me as a 21st century hippy and all these experiences provide backbone to the telling of many stories - traditional, personal and biblical. I am a member of the Society For Storytellers, The Telling Place and Eltham storytelling club. I am currently planning some women's events called "Trading Air" dealing with rites of passage at various stages of life.
