OK time for an update. I’ve had a few people lately asking whether this is my own work – yes it is! I work in different styles so it may look varied but all the work on these pages is mine. If I’ve taken photos of other people’s work i.e. in a gallery then the title should indicate this.
So here goes… I like to interact with the world in lots of different ways and I currently work in museums. I have a diverse creative life and I also have a PhD in science and a background in science teaching. Generally I’m dedicated to the public understanding of science, art and heritage and I like to work with people of all ages and backgrounds.
Sometimes I have difficulty in deciding just how to approach things creatively since I also enjoy the technical aspects of expression and can spend a lot of time learning new techniques and trying things out. So I’ve never mastered one technique but I continue to ponder and explore. Currently the main things are singing and playing string instruments for some songs I am working on, but sometimes the things might be painting and drawing.
So this year I have been focussing on music which unfortunately I can’t post yet because it’s a collaboration (woohoo) but in the meantime I’m still posting photo collections and the odd drawing. I painted and drew in France during my summer holiday last year and I’ve been painting a lot of walls in my flat recently. The renovations are nearing completion. in 2014 I finished a series of coil pots that are heavily influenced by my experiences of rock as a climber and also by fungus which I spent a lot of time spotting, photographing and eating one previous autumn.
