Fi R Backhouse
Fi studied photography at Newcastle upon Tyne university and now juggles her family life while working professionally as a photographer. Fi welcomed the idea of forming e9makers with Lisa and Natalia as she saw it as a way of making space in her busy life to continue to develop her creative life while getting to know other artists.
Eventually Fi extended this precious time for creating into the Mindfulness in Art Workshops that have been running for just over a year. Fi runs these at Hatch café once a month during term-time. Lasting two hours they give the attendees an opportunity to learn new skills and make new friends while taking some time out for themselves.
