on show now
I am exhibiting new work at CAS, Andover alongside Tony Spencer and Christine Dodd in 'Nothing IS Immediate' 4 - 24 September 2021. Get directions to CAS here
My intention for 2020 was to transform my relationship with the element of Fire. Tired of burning up and burning out, by the end of the year I wanted to learn how to feed my creative fire by focusing on what is nurturing, satisfying and enlivening. Drawing on symbolism from my mythological imagination this body of work explores notions of vitality, desire, strength and courage.
art for wellbeing
'Nothing IS Immediate' on show at CAS Andover is full of work produced as part of Tony Spencers Art Council England funded R&D project which asked 'Can art be functional, healing, sacred?'.
If you want you can join me for 'Elemental Self Expression' a creative writing workshop as part of your experience of our group show at CAS running 4-24 Sept 2021.
Dialogues with Nature Network
An experimental non-hierarchical project that is creating a mutual learning environment for dialogues with nature and building an international community of artists, writers and professionals working in the arts or in nature (or both!). Together we are on an organic exploration of how to live in better balance through dialogue with the natural world, our own nature, and our creativity.
Laboratory of Dissent 2019
An arts symposium, followed by a CAS Associate Artist project residency culminating in a group show at Winchester Gallery. During the symposium I was invited to create a 10min manifesto. Surprisingly (or unsurprisingly?) the two I came up with summarise the direction of my artistic explorations.
Paper-clips with Raven
In 2018 I self-published a book of poetry and film-stills to accompany the release of my first art film 'Wild Mother'. Both the book and film express and support the beginning surge toward recovery and improved wellbeing.
