experimentation - a-n The Artists Information Company
I have been hard at work experimenting in the studio trying to create an experience that replicates the effect of a forest on attention. In the first blog I outlined the aspects of a forest that psychologists believe cause this […]
Artist in Residence in the attic studio at Stiwdio Maelor. This blog will support my residency research, documentation and process of making.
In the meantime, while looking for the right clothing I wished to portray within my animated film. I started looking into the history of upset, sin and depressive states. Within this research I found the belief of Hell, and to […]
A Reflection on my MA Fine Art end of year exhibition at Teesside University.
I considered casting the form in a ‘womb-like’ material, or covering it. From this idea I sculpted, experimented, played with patterns and marks in clay and cast them in Latex. The outcomes were exciting, but I felt that they were […]
I find it really interesting that many successful creative people have the same personality trait in common: they are open to new experiences. Having an open mind, a willingness to try new things or at least entertain the prospect of […]
My photo-luminescence powders have just arrived! Time to start experimenting.

Whilst I seem to have been busy since my last blog, my actual creative output seems to have been pretty scant. I do seem to have been involved in an awful lot of art admin– entering competitions, preparing for a […]
Continuing with my experimentations in the studio, I should have been a scientist ha-ha! Actually really enjoying this phase maybe I am just not used to not having an immediate goal. Just been rejected for a job as not enough […]

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking recently about my work and it’s left me feeling stuck. I am at a point now where I have started to pick apart my practice and really begin to understand what my artistic concerns […]
An exploration of why I do the things that I do. I aim to undertake a regular studio practice and to document it here, in order to investigate what elements of my work are important and what I’m drawn to aesthetically and thematically.
