National Centre for Craft & Design Exhibition & 'What if...' iPad Art Workshops

June 1, 2012


 

I recently started my Arts Council England funded National Centre for Craft & Design (NCCD) ‘What if…’ iPad Workshops, which means that I have been able to purchase 30 iPads + lots of other amazing IT equipment, which I take into schools and deliver iPad art sessions.

 

The sessions introduce the participants to the new media, through making art about their aspirations, about what they want to be, what would like to be, etc.

 

This makes for amazing sessions and wonderful artwork.

 

As well as delivering 50 free sessions I am also linking the work to the exhibition at the National Centre for Craft & Design, which opens on 27th July 2012.

 

I feel very lucky and honoured to be working on such a prestigious project.

Cork Street Gallery Open Exhibition 2011

 

On Wednesday 3rd August 2011 I attended the Cork Street Gallery Open Exhibition 2011, at which I had been very fortunate and privileged to have one piece shown. What made the experience so memorable and special, was the fact that Cork Street was the place that I visited as an art student over 20 years ago, and dreamed of having my work there. It was the place where one aspired to show their work, if you were a painter or sculptor.

 

A Painting a Day & Other Events

 

This is a week late, but better late than never.

 

I have had a mad few weeks and days of creativity, and in particular the last week has been challenging as I attempted to do a painting a day. It was meant to try to free up my style and to also try and cope with not feeling all that great.

 

I’ve had a blinding headache for several days now, but through creating the paintings in such a speedy way, I have been able to channel all of this into the wo...
