Trees

Well hello its 2021… this is my walk from home at the time being…walking amongst trees reminds of a project I was involved in. Shelley Sacks’ Project “University of the Trees” in 2007. Shelley was a Professor at Oxford Brookes. She works on interdisciplinary social sculpture projects and studied alongside Joseph Beuys.

I used this social sculpture process within my community projects over the last 10 years. More investigation is needed on the Earth Forum Initiative. I am finding looking back at previous work is helping to focus on the future.

A Veritable Colony of Artists

Delighted to have taken part in this record breaking event. #ArtforGood, 1000 artists painting on the coastline Lands End to Sennen, United Kingdom. Organised by artist Anthony Garratt, Newlyn School of Art and the National Trust. Raising profile of coastal erosion and funds for granite path on the edge of Cornwall. Great feeling to be part of a visible #masspainting creative thing!

Environment & Engagement

A FUN day at Yarner Woods on the Granite Elements Project. Members of Bovey Tracey Society of Artists were inspired to create. We walked and explored gaining a sense of place. The bird song, the character of the trees, the strength of the granite. We talked of poetry, geology & history and how it informs our making. AND the joy of seeing M, at 85 years, able to join us in our outdoor workshop. Thanks Albert at Natural England for the Landy!
