Project summary:

I have worked in the field of art training, teaching or creating since 1982. After studying an iIlustration degree at Manchester Metropolitan University I then worked in publishing, mainly in the area of education and information books. I went on to study a Fine Art MA at Coventry School of Art and Design and trained in adult teaching City and Guilds 730.

My work explores the miniature interior as a transmutable art form, a stage set to communicate my many explorations concerning the surreal and the domestic object and interior. I have created a film based on photographs of the interior of the dolls’ house. The film combines my photography and a poem written by me. I would like to see how far I can go beyond the existing confines of my poetry and photography. I would appreciate access to various digital media programmes that I cannot easily access. I would also like to develop my poetry writing and sculpting in relation to the interior. In terms of the photography alone I would like to process images using the old methods of Gelatine on silver and Tin type.  I will make the most of facilities and will be very happy to assist and inspire students and progress as an artist.

 

I continue to draw and take commissions and also to teach in art.
