do you have a favourite artist or artwork?

Sally Smart is an instrumental artist that has inspired me greatly through her theatrical and whimsical puppet forms. I love the way she plays with composition.

what was your first experience of art?

Probably drawing rabbits in fluorescent highlighter when I was small. I think my mum still has those pictures somewhere.

How has the current situation changed your approach to making art and running your arts group?

Most of the shows I have work in this year have been pushed back to 2021. I've tried to use the enforced downtime this year to experiment and develop my practice and try some new things.

What are you looking forward to after the pandemic? 

Galleries! I can't wait to be able to see shows again and catch up with friends I haven't seen in months.
