What I do
I write poems, vignettes, plays, screenplays, discursive articles. To be honest, I write in whatever form most suits my idea, whether or not I've written in that genre before. It's all about the idea and how best to bring it to life.
I have been creating, directing and performing theatre
since 1986. I have a love of experimental and devised
theatre. When directing traditional plays, I try to find the
new approach, the opportunity for multi-media to support
the narrative, or the way to foreground the non-verbal. I
love to work collaboratively, so the the finished piece
is entirely ours, and not mine
To say that my style is naive is an understatement. Mainly I throw paint around. My aim is to capture a mood or a moment or a thought. I am intrigued by expressing an idea in a variety of artistic forms, so I'll match a painting to a poem, or a moment of theatrical tension to a single stroke of the brush. I have exhibited at the Great Sheffield Arts Show.
