Imagine a World
26/05/2022

It’s an odd decision to start a blog seeing as writing doesn’t come easily to me and I find it especially difficult about my practice. Artist statements, applications, proposals, all require a concise articulate explanation all within a certain number of words, characters and spaces.

Imagine, if instead, you come for a walk with me on the beach and I’ll show you the best spots to find shell clusters, sea glass, plastic and pebbles.
We can marvel at the architectural wonder of honeycomb worm reefs, do a bit of starfish rescue and hunt for 350 million-year-old fossilised corals.

You could call into my studio for a brew, peer into cabinets of beachcombed curiosities, explore collections of gathered & gifted ‘stuff’ and discover a whole new world under the microscope.

We could spend a few hours collaging, drawing and printmaking responding to what we’ve seen. We can head to the greenhouse to boil, steep and grind foraged materials to make pigments and inks and if you can stay a little longer we can make some ‘things’ from clay, plaster, wax and soap.

In an ideal world this would be my artist statement but for now, it’s back to the laptop.
