Cycle Shed - Plant Life Cycle Residency

Yesterday saw my first on-site session at Dewsbury Country Park with the 'Cycle Shed' as part of the Plant Life Cycle project. I am one of three artists in residence commissioned as part of the project to create 'cycle' themed work in response to Dewsbury Counrty Park. I had a wonderful time and started on three new drawings which will inform further work, and hopefully an animated response to the park.

Commissioned Archive Film Projected on Barnsley Town Hall

Last Friday saw the projection of my new stop-motion film 'Archives' on Barnsley Town Hall. The film was commissioned by Barnsley Museums to celebrate and promote the Archives and Local Studies Centre within the wonderful Experience Barnsley Museum. The film was shot over a three month period within the Archives department in the basement of Barnsley Town Hall. The film is accompanied by a beautiful track from the talented Garforth and Myers. What a wonderful project! Thanks goes out to James Brunt and all the staff at the Archives and Local Studies Centre.

Workshops with the Fauna

Over the past 2 weeks Jonathan Grauel and I have been delivering a series of workshops for children based on my exhibition 'Chatting with the Fauna'.  Wonderful pupils supported by a great bunch of adults, all willing to dive into two hour workshops full of drawing activity, animal related imagery, experimentation and fun!

A big thank you to Natalie Deane for organising the school sessions, and to Creative Arts Hub Mirfield for hosting the exhibition and workshops!

Super Fantastic!!
