2018 has been a busy year and full of creativity and excitement.
I’d first of all like to start by thanking all of the wonderful companies, charities and organisations whom I’ve had the pleasure of working. Working with and for you all fills me with inspiration and keeps me thinking and creating!
March/April 2018 saw me take the first permanent job which I’ve had in years as the Room 13 Artist in Residence at Old Ford Primary School. Admittedly I wasn’t looking for anything permanent when it came up, but I just fell in love with the school, the job role suited me down to the ground and the security of a permanent job as opposed to permeant freelance has taken a huge pressure off.
I work weekday afternoons in the studio and my job entails devising and planning art projects for students in KS1 and KS2, implementing art projects and fundraisers with businesses. Since starting my role I’ve been lucky enough to work alongside construction company Galliard Homes. Myself and 200 children have designed and created an artwork which depicts the history of East London as an illustrated timeline and will soon be printed onto a large-scale hoarding around Galliard’s new development site in Canary Wharf.
