Weymouth / Sarajevo, Dorset / Bosnia, United Kingdom
I create monsters and elves, and habitats for them to live in. I enjoy playing with scale, building a planet out of a pepperpot. Creating worlds to get lost in.
Currently I'm constructing massive shells, which tiny parasitical human communities have gunked up. Switching between macro and micro, nature and Gunk... Part of the Cultural Olympiad in Weymouth and Portland, change is a-foot in our little backwater at last! 2008 has also involved tireless energy on a processional project in the run up to the Sailing Olympics in 2012; 'Armada on the Esplanada’.
I work a lot in prisons, run the Learning 2 Learn programme for Anne Peaker Centre. I'm getting excited about starting some similar work in eastern European communities. I have lived and worked in the Balkans for many years and spend a lot of time in Sarajevo, which is probably the most special place I know in terms of amazing people and quirkiness. Incredible underground bar and music scene and people with genuine spirit and something considered to say about the world. I go there to find balance to the petty politics and mundanity of the UK. My Bosnian friends will scream and shout when they read that.
