Meet The Artists

Green Door, an arts organisation based in the south lakes recently commissioned a series of video shorts called Meet The Artists. I was interviewed by the film maker Shaun Blezard, who specialises in music and creative technology (the iPad is his instrument of choice – running apps like ThumbJam, Samplr, Borderlands and SQRT). He also […]

Space2Create Collaboration… (part 5)

Here’s further progress updates to the painting…more stencilled starling layers of progressively darkening grey. During these layers I noticed that some of the stencils appear to be a single starling depicted at different moments in flight, cutting through space/sky. I intended the stencils to be more dense to the bottom left corner, but have been […]

Space2Create Collaboration…progress (part 4)

Each week, Wednesday is my time to spend in my studio, a little midweek oasis of creative activity! This week ‘Studio Wednesday‘ as I like to call it was punctuated with a lunchtime wild swim at Gurnal Dubs near Kendal. The weather was amazing and we could have easily spend the rest of the day […]

Space2Create Collaboration…progress (part 3)

The background layers were created using very loose brushwork with a relatively wide paint brush. The layers and brush strokes that […]

I have now received the piece of creative writing to use as a starting point to work into a painting. I’m not sure I’m able to publish the written work yet, so won’t include it here until I hear back. I had already started the background work for a painting, which will now lend itself […]

As part of Green Door Artists in Cumbria, I recently received an email newsletter with a link to a new project being run by Space2Create. ‘We firmly believe in the benefits of being creative as part of a group. For anyone who has found themselves isolated or excluded while experiencing long term physical or mental […]

React, adapt…transform.

It’s been a while, several months in fact since I posted to my blog last. I’m not sure why I’m writing this now and it doesn’t matter, as most bloggers  know (well, those of us without any active readers yet) it’s as much about the process of blogging than it is questioning why, otherwise we’d easily […]

Short Thoughts: Motivation, Purpose & Meaning.

In February I wrote a Short Thoughts blog with the title What three things make YOU an Authentic Artist? In that blog post I isolated Motivation, Purpose and Meaning as being the three things that I feel authenticate my artwork. The concept of the authentic artist is something I’ve discussed in previous blogs also, but […]

Third Time Lucky? Threadneedle Prize

The results are out. The final cull has been made by the judges, who chose not to accept my painting Grab Your Eyes after they shortlisted the digital submission and then viewed the physical work. This is my second time being shortlisted. My second time incurring expense for both submitting the digital image (yes there […]
