Artist Statement

Art  is about sharing our passions and encouraging each other to take risks, recognizing our own individuality and originality, and being moved to action for positive change. 

Today the role of Art for action and positive change is critical.  We are facing major challenges on a global scale relating to economic instability, our changing climate, and pending questions around what we will do when crude oil runs out, and the pound, dollar, and euro crash. Art needs to be coherent and deliver strong messages in support of new initiatives and freedom of information. Communities need to be able to take control when new crisis present themselves.   

 

  •  For me the function of Art in an ART space is simple: it is the exploration of a poetic space which seeks to positively broaden collective understanding and angles of perception in reality, whether in performance Art, visual Art, poetry, or any other form i.e. Dance.

 

  • I try to emanate the joy and spontaneity of making which for me is so important to enjoying life, embracing creativity, and being both free and peaceful. I have developed strong beliefs about how right this is.

  • I believe Art making is not an act limited to the expression of a single person who produces an aesthetic or moving piece, it is an active decision to punctuate an existential debate which is only brought into existence through the continuity of a collective discourse that threads back through the making: i.e. the ideas inspired in other people are the reason the Art work fits. 

  • I believe that ideas do not always have to be verbalized items and that emanation does not belong to criticism, literature, or intellectualism but that it is borrowed by them and constitutes their foundations.

  • I believe that brilliance is a basic human capacity, and maybe also a human right. I believe that artistry is a celebration of this.

  • I believe, hope, and expect that interdisciplinary connections between individuals exercising and aspiring to brilliance will bring about new discoveries for the human race and solutions to collective problems and challenges.


I was born in the North of England in 1985 and grew up in a small town called Alsager. I was first accredited for my writing skills in school at the age of 5 for having written a story that was eight pages long.  I wouId stay up all night hiding under my covers to read Enid Blyton stories, and wake up wondering whether my dreams about flying were real.  

The piano was my first Love, and as an adolescent I became very interested in everything deep, profound, and culturally influenced. 

I had been told I was a gifted writer, a gifted pianist and composer,  a gifted analyst and advisor, and I always got good grades. However, I was afraid of failure, and I chose to study French and Philosophy instead of Art or Music.

I quickly switched to Art History when I discovered it. I couldn't resist the drag of artistic brilliance; even if it was through other people.

When I first read from my collection of poetry at the University writing society, I realized from the reaction of the group that what I had to share was special, and that it was important to keep doing it.   

In september 2008 I accepted a Business job in Paris. I have been here, trying to explore creative possibilities and synergies.

I have had the chance to work on a number  of projects and to start some of my own. I am now looking to invest my time wisely.  

Being in Paris has allowed me to expand my circle to a range of people who are doing artistic, and original things. I feel privileged and inspired to tread these circles and it is one of my goals is to help expand them.  

Another goal is to set up a Business that will allow Business people and Art people to benefit from one another. 

 Below is a video made a few months after I first arrived in Paris. It is a poetic exploration of some relational issues in organisations and money and power against or with humanity and creativity. They are themes that have often occupied my thoughts a lot as I worry about society, and questions about these themes have been important in the development of my ideas.
