I am director of Artists Open Houses and HOUSE festivals, taking place in May each year to coincide with the Brighton Festival.
HOUSE commissions curatorially themed, outstanding contemporary art, curating gallery, non-gallery, domestic and public realm spaces. We commission work from a range of artists, including internationally regarded artists, mid career and emerging artists and those marginalised from the art world mainstream; co-commissioning with partners Brighton Festival, Photoworks, Outside In and Lighthouse. We also produce accompanying educational and community engagement programmes.
Artists Open Houses is an open-to-all community festival encouraging and providing a platform for artists at all stages of their careers.
I studied as a Fine Artist, painter and printmaker and continue to practice as a printmaker and illustrator.
