To date i am in the final stages of completing the M.F.A. Art Society and Publics course. This course has helped me define my  art practice by allowing me time to develop a deeper level of understanding of myself and  consequently what drives my art practice.This has been at times both challenging and enjoyable.

The outcome of this learning, is that it is no longer enough for me to have people/ public interact with my paintings and drawings, although i hope this will continue,i feel a need to have more interaction with people, to this end i plan to, and have already put my creative thinking and research skills into facilitating community engagement  projects, with an emphasis on projects which encourage the creative interaction  with nature, by utilising natures resources to  learn from and produce new skills and artwork.  All of which have been proved to have a beneficial effect the physical and mental well-being of us all.

This is the first public announcement of the proposed new project happening next door!

My art practice is changing to more of a social and public engagement excercise with current practices running art activities for the social prescribing initiative, and involving myself with initial the planning stages of the  development of a new council funded community garden project which is literally  on my back door step, and the third part of my current practice is the design and build project of a handcart i plan to use in a variety of ways to help disseminate my art practice.


Watch this space things are going to change very quickly (i hope)
