‘.... engaging, funny, knowledgeable and a great tutor. 
(Testimonial from January 2020 workshop)

Summer 2021 update

Ongoing explorations

As artists we are always exploring different medium and methods of working. Summer 2021 saw an intensive period of collaborative work on the Big Brush Art project when we were given a large space as a pilot residency by Black Swan Arts for July and August.

Big Brush Art is a collaborative project with Sarah Ball using domestic sweeping brushes on large canvas on the floor. Call and response method of working.
