Arts Council England award

Really pleased to be able to now share that I've been awarded a Developing Your Creative Practice grant from the Arts Council England.

This is for a project called Future Fanasteek! in Motion running between Aug 2021 and Feb 2022 and it will have its own website to share the work in progress and final outcomes.

I want to explore the space between animation and the still-image on the printed zine, to develop aspects of motion, digitally and through AR. I propose digital interventions in sound, animation & sequence to make the unfolding of pages (real & virtual) a multi-layered experience. This grant provides dedicated time to learn to record, edit and place sound/image in harmony so that I can enhance the experience when viewing zines online and in-print using AR. I see this as mixing elements in unexpected ways that will be an exciting step-change in my practice.

'Decay' exhibition for The Rise Collective in Hanoi, Vietnam - April 2021

I'm really pleased that I have a limited edition print on shown in an exhibition in Hanoi, Vietnam curated by The Rise Collective. The curator @livyhasnolife has set the theme as 'Decay' and over 50 artists from around the world are showing work.

The show will be on 3rd-12th April 2021 at @archhanoi, in aid of @bluedragonchildren.
"The exhibition has the aim to raise money for @bluedragonchildren✨🐉✨ Blue Dragon offers children and families in crisis throughout Vietnam the chance to change their situations. Their services include rescue and crisis care for young people in immediate danger. They provide shelter, legal advocacy as well as long term support in returning to school and/or training. BD have rescued 1000 victims of human trafficking and continue to do amazing work."    From the organiser's Instagram Page

This is my print, it's a two colour lino print about food waste.
