Green Door Mentoring Award Winner 2014
I have recently received a distinction From Kendal College completing a ‘Foundation Degree’ in Art and Design. This has given me the
opportunity to work with the ‘Green Door Artists’ after winning their award for my final exhibition installation. I also volunteer with a art
group for a dementia group at the ‘Gateway Centre’ and I am part of Space2Create in Kendal.
I feel I am a conceptual artist and I have demonstrated in visual ways issues I am passionate about. I particularly like collage and print making and using mixed media. I have seen the way art gives the freedom to express oneself in any way and I feel that what comes from within is both exciting and original and the sense of achievement can be shared. As an artist I feel you can be taught a technique but it’s about experimenting and come up with something different. I like art because you never know the final result so it is ever evolving. No matter who you are art creates a reaction and hopefully a connection of some understanding.
