Personal Statement and current practice.
“ It has been a pleasure to have been involved in the arts all my life and my experience in hosting exhibitions have given me a superb insight into the more entrepreneurial aspects of my own practice.
Today I have the honour and good fortune to have developed as a musician where many similarities exist in terms of engaging with the public, seeking and securing funding and sponsorship, and keeping the momentum of output sustainable and cost effective. I am eternally grateful for the financial support and mentoring awarded to me by the Future’s Venture Foundation and I remain a committed fellow of the Royal Society for Arts, London.
I remain focused as an artist and writer, as well as musician, and find that blending my skills has given rise to my current success in the field of combined arts.
I write several weekly book series, Immersion and If, and I compose music everyday for my burgeoning portfolio under the moniker of Tale Teller Club.”
