Thoughts……

Contemplating The Absurd and SEARCHING for  meaning in a world seemingly without point or reason. 

………..In the subconscious we play to an imaginary audience and drift in and out of a subjective reality – the Theatre of the Mind.

………The fascination of the space between fantasy and reality. The threshold between leaving one and moving into the other.

Projects & Workshops

Artist in Residence – Thornbury Mayor. 2016/17

This residency is a first for Thornbury  and was initiated by Helen Harrison, Town Mayor when she approached me to be her artist in Residence. Together we will explore what it is like to be part of the community of Thornbury.

Throughout the year I will be working with various groups in Thornbury to discover what  it feels like to be in their group and their place within the community.

We will put on an exhibition of the work created at the end of Helen’s year as Mayor. This exhibition will raise funds for Helen’s chosen charity – Jigsaw,  a local group that supports families with children and young people with additional needs.

Sample Page

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.
