After a couple of years out of the PAOS loop, I am back with a new selection of work that celebrates my hyperactive imagination. In a creative bubble where boxes are infinite circles and happy accidents are purposeful my artwork emerges. Expect to see the usual suspects in my mixed media menagerie, cats, houses, cars, wild flowers, rainbows and happy worry dolls, mod targets and butterflies. Latest additions include; punk rockers, green monsters, black dogs and sheep, Harold the Heron (of Ferry Meadows) and a dash of poetry. It’s been a weird few years and I hope my work somehow sums up the unbridled chaos, both internal and external.
My featured artwork ‘Reigning ADHD’ was commissioned by the national charity, The ADHD Foundation. Limited edition prints are still available (25% proceeds going to the charity). The artwork was inspired by the ‘Umbrella Project’ which is an installation created annually in Liverpool (and now Manchester also) to raise awareness surrounding neurodiversity. I was over the moon to have won the charity’s 2018 national ‘Artist’ award.
I am very passionate about the cause behind the ADHD charities as I was diagnosed myself with ADHD in 2009 whilst employed as an Art Teacher. My life has improved significantly since my diagnosis and I rely on my creativity heavily as one of the strategies to keep my ADHD ‘symptoms’ at bay. I was one of the first adults in the UK to be diagnosed with the condition and my work has become entwined with reducing the stereotypes and stigma surrounding this most misunderstood of conditions.
I am very excited to be invited back to 153 The Broadway to exhibit for the fourth time. Light refreshments and access to the garden weather permitting.
