learning & development is a vital part of my practice. this year I have undertaken:
12-month ERDF-funded STEAMhouse Create programme
3-month Art Tech bootcamp

6-week Electronic Music Production course with Saffron Music
Carpentry Level 1
12-week Electronic Music course at MAC
i am part of the Create Programme 2022-2023 at STEAMhouse, Birmingham, which is a 12-month business development scheme for creatives funded by the ERDF.
i chose to focus on developing my freelance career as a self-employed artist working with communities & to develop my website & social media.
i’ve completed a 3-month gallery & museum technician skills bootcamp led by coventry university. in my previous career I worked as a senior manager in museums, art galleries & archives for over 16 years which also informs my art technician work. i am registered as self-employed and am available to work as a freelancer.
i have completed an intensive 6-week filming performance skills bootcamp led by solihull college & university centre in partnership with the space & overseen by director/producer hayley pepler. i was successful in applying for a bursary from screen skills.
starting soon on 1 march 2023…
i have been successful in gaining a fully-funded place on a 6-week electronic music production course led by Saffron Music:
i’ve completed kitchen fitting, stud wall building & foundation level carpentry courses at walsall construction training centre to develop my skills in installing exhibitions.
i‘m studying further qualifications in carpentry & joinery, and welding, at college in september 2023.
i am learning level 1 welding skills at wolverhampton city college in september 2023.
i have a degree in sculpture & i enjoyed spending time in the metal workshops creating metal art works which involved welding.
as a digital artist I want to learn more about AV, particularly projection, immersive technology & computer music, so i’m thinking about submitting a DYCP ACE funding bid to develop this aspect of my creative practice, including art technician skills.
i’m just mulling the idea over & forming a plan at the moment …
