As an artist I've always enjoyed a challenge and felt good about the fact I can work in lots of different mediums to create my work so when De Montfort University asked me to create a digital artwork I jumped at the chance.

Eight months ago I sat down and had a conversa...

Starting the Art club at StudionAme was something I'd wanted to do for a long time but I never guessed what a success it would become. We're into our 3rd month and the group just keeps growing each week with new kids visiting and making friends with the kids that come...

Yesterday I taught an art class in the city with a group of retired people learning all about charcoal and how great it is as a medium. They enjoyed the chance to use something new and some had never used charcoal before, but they'll definitely use it again.
