Amsterdam Observations

I took a trip to Amsterdam with a group from Hereford College of Art.  We stayed at the cheerfully basic Hans Brickner Hotel which makes a feature out of a flaw with it's advertising campaign "Now a door in every room" and such things.  We went to the Staedelijk gallery and feasted on loads of modernist art and saw some Mondrians in their natural environment.  We met the charismatic Orion Maxted, a performance artist who explained the use of systems in his process.  Also Berndnaut Smilde whose amazing indoor clouds and other photographic interventions inspired and intrigued.  Apart from the first day when it was raining quite a lot, I had my SLR with me to capture some of the architecture and happenstance situations as they appeared before us.  I enjoy travelling to European cities, I hope it's not going to become too much harder to do so.  It's reinvigorating to explore somewhere different from the everyday environment of home.

Hello

Hello and welcome to my new website.  It's a place to catalogue and showcase a variety of work.  I have often straddled the gap between fine art and design, and am interested in writing, DIY publishing, mark-making, painting, photography, video, and installation.  I have enjoyed collaborating with other artists in the past and would be open to doing so in the future.  If you want to get in touch about buying prints or originals, want to commission a work, or need assistance with print design, photography or copywriting, get in touch on my contact page... (The photo is from a recent first trip to Stonehenge.  I tend to document daily life in various ways and will be blogging here.)
