ways of looking

This quote is so wonderful, from Kasper, a young person on my Ways of Looking: Future Youth Inspired Project at Pitzhanger Manor last month. He shared with us that he had experienced bullying at school and didn't feel he was a popular pupil. 

'It was a calm course with no pressure and I made friends.'

summer

Oh my! I've had a really busy summer. The Hepworth have kept me on my toes with the Out & About project coming to a close in June, I also developed a celebratory activity for the start of The Grand Depart in Leeds, delivering that on a sunny weekend at the beginning of July. As well as supporting family activities at the gallery I co-delivered the Summer Arts College for young offenders in August. In July I exhibited my work for the first time in The Leytonstone Arts Trail, and another first was creating and delivering a project for young people at Pitzhanger Manor in Ealing. 

I'm now on the brink of a year of creativity at Drew Primary School in Newham, working with every class and teacher inventing bespoke art projects - amazing!

Currently on the search for a studio share as the regular work at Drew means I can take on a space! Its time for my practice and to manifest the ideas buzzing around in my head.
