Louise Pendry
Artistic Director

Louise founded Bounce in 2006. She oversees the artistic direction of Bounce’s work. Along with this, she devises, directs and delivers projects. She fell in love with drama in Year 7. It was the first lesson at school where she felt like she belonged. She works now with the intention of giving that same feeling to people who join in with Bounce.

She is a Mental Health First Aider, and Safeguarding Officer for Bounce.

Outside of work, she likes hanging out with her boys, cooking with vegetables, and running.

Collagism
Artist

Collagism is a multimedia artist working in the medium of collage. She loves to present workshops engaging students in developing their creativity and love of art. Her art career has spanned over twenty years, exhibiting and performing work all over the world. An Australian by birth that has called London her home for close to 10 years.

Harriet Ditmore
ARtist

Harriet is an actress and drama facilitator. She has experience working with lots of different communities from teenagers with learning difficulties, to young offenders, to children in reception. Her favourite thing about facilitating drama sessions is creating a safe space where young people feel confident enough to explore performing. She loves taking her dog on long walks and is also a trained dancer.

Laura Gray
Artist

A lifelong learner, international educator, and instructional coach, Laura has worked in the UK and in international school settings for over 20 years. She holds the belief in a student-driven education and self-directed learning. Learners are at the heart of education, and therefore, learning should be differentiated and personal. When learners inquire and explore, they understand more deeply.

The world needs to be open to all students so that they are aware of others and have empathy for people around the globe. Laura’s wish for everyone is that they care enough to take action to make a difference.

Gemma Lloyd
ARtist

Gemma spent nearly seven years at Art School training to be a creative artist. She has always worked in the arts, including running her own business in the film and theatre world, and now runs an art shop in Tooting Market with a friend. She also runs an organisation that enables many people to engage in the arts. She believes that art is really important for everyone to experience and is making it her mission to make this happen.

She loves to draw, make prints, and jewellery out of metal. When she’s not working she loves to go to the cinema, lifting weights in the gym, going for really long walks and laughing a lot with her friends and family.
