I am a sculptor and community artist with a particular interest in the environment. Starting with work made in my allotment I have moved out into my local area and am making sound pieces, boxes which house these and carved spoons as well as working with soil and seeds. I am particularly noticing the social changes in the area and it is hard to reconcile the new wild flower meadows in Burgess Park with the next-door anti-regeneration protests taking place on and around the buildings. This chimes with the subject of monoculture, which I am thinking about at the moment, both directly in the context of nature, for example the conflicting interests of food production and maintaining biodiversity, and metaphorically in the dismantling of the local for economic reasons. I also work with the local community on a variety of art projects, particularly with older residents.
I am currently working with Blindaid running a weekly workshop and on a project Place to Remember in collaboration with two other artists, 4 Corners art group and Waterside Care Home. I previously managed and ran the Heart Garden Project for 5 years.
I am running gardening and art projects with Inspire, particularly aimed at people with high need and learning difficulties.
