In the 11 years trading as a freelance artist, workshop facilitator and visiting lecturer I have gained vital knowledge of running a business, experience diversifying and adapting my skills. I will be talking through my journey as an artist, juggling motherhood and projects. How my work helped me though emotionally difficult times and how this process informed my work.
During the AA2A I will be developing a new body of work reflecting on relationships, communication and the use of language both spoken and unspoken. I will talk though my development, inspiration and concepts for this work.
Between 27th January and 16th March 2016 National Glass Centre is offering a series of early evening talks given by professionals from the creative industries including visiting artists on the ‘Artists Access to Art Schools’ (AA2A) scheme and staff from the ‘Arts’ team at the University of Sunderland. These talks will provide a range of case studies of the careers of professionals in the art and design field. The talks are designed for students in Fine Art, Photography and Glass and Ceramics at the University of Sunderland but are also open to the public. This programme has been supported by the Institute for International Research in Glass (IIRG) and Ceramics Arts Research Centre at the University of Sunderland.
Please note these talks will take place at Lecture Theatre 007 of the Prospect Building on St Peter's Campus. 2 mins walk from National Glass Centre.
