Welcome to my Creative Blog! Here you will find articles I have written including, 'How To's', 'Exhibition Reviews' and 'Important News'. As an artist I engage with a day to day creative lifestyle, whether that is going to the studio to work on my latest project, visiting exhibitions or helping others to unlock their creative potential through my teaching practice. My intentions of this blog is to inspire you to be creative in any way that you can be, whether that's developing a new artistic skill or pique your interest in an event or exhibition. I would like to invite you to share in my creative adventures and hope that I can play a part in inspiring your own.
