My time as the artist in residence at Tudor House Museum and Gardens in Southampton has now come to an end. Eight months seemed such a long time when I started out,  I have learned so much about working in an environment such as this as well as challenging my own inner demons overcoming my self-doubt and understanding my own motivations that drive my creative endeavors.


As part of my funding, I commissioned a  short film to be made to assist me to record and share a little of my  experience with others,  Filmed between March and May it was completed by the end of my time there  and I am pleased to share that this is now available via this link 

My work is now on show at the museum and to mark the end of my journey I am providing a meet the artist event to allow time to share more detail about my experience and show some of the work that has not been recorded in the film and isn’t on display at the museum this will take place on  Sunday, July the 17th July for further details and to book a place

I am grateful to the support of the staff and volunteers  at Tudor House Museum and Gardens and the wider team from Southampton City Council Culture Team who without their support I would have been unable to have undertaken the residency,

And most importantly a big thank you to Arts Council England for awarding me the funds to undertake this journey.

And finally, I wish to say a big thank you to  a- space arts who provided encouragement and nonjudgemental constructive support, to enable me to vocalize my thoughts and encourage me to make my dreams a reality.
