About

I started this blog as a way of recording multi-sensory elements…. images, thoughts, words and making, that inform my creative life. It seems random but all these varied stimuli culminate into art themes. I often refer to Aristotle’s 4 causes within a project.

Since 2007 I have been a Painter & Social Arts Practioner (Community Artist) initiating projects with people, re-engaging with our natural environment, in my home town Ivybridge UK.
It started on my Arts & Ecology Masters at Dartington, then continued when I learnt on The Body Politic (PlatformLONDON) that its ok to be an activist with a small a, what you are able to do is relevant to your own circumstances, its finding that life balance…

I now take my community social ecologies experience and creative painting practice wider, from local to international. Call it research ……. my first sojourn 2015 to Japan seeking autumn trees, I do like a red tree… and the ideas seem to be rolling, lets see where it goes. ……
