New woodland explorations

New woodland explorations

I love that moment when something new (to me) is realised! Often I find it difficult to move work forward and spend a good deal of time creating work that is similar other than the location or setting.  I don’t mind this, as its always the location that inspires me to continue making a series of work, but when something new does evolve, it is a very nice and welcome development.

Land Art experiences for schools and groups

Land Art experiences for schools and groups –

Following the work I did with Faceless Arts on Art Comes Naturally and the current work I’m doing with Todwick Primary, I really want to develop further my school work.  Witnessing how much children get from the opportunity to explore the outdoors and create artwork using foraged materials has been very rewarding.

I have very reasonable rates for my Land Art experience days and can taylor activities around the schools requirements in terms of numbers, so please share and get in touch if you’d like more details.

Creative moments from Anston Stones

Creative moments from Anston Stones

Anston Stones is my playground, its right on my doorstep and the place I go to be inspired by the surroundings, the changes in the seasons and the abundance of resource from which to inspired.  I get feedback from people who bump into me when Im playing and company from my dog who is normally in tow and also the wildlife that seem to accept me the longer I’m there. Had some lovely encounters with the Kingfishers that have resided there this year and often have a Jay that happily hops past along the woodland floor.
