I am an artist and illustrator aiming to make images and animations that encourage people – including myself – to think more deeply about the world and their place in it. I work in a range of media including drawing, printmaking, photography, collage, painting and digital media. My professional work develops visual communication strategies between communities and development agencies in Africa, Asia and Latin America. But the more I travel, the more questions I bring back and my image-making now increasingly focuses on potentials and challenges nearer to home.
This blog brings together my work, research and thoughts for Open College of the Arts Visual Communications level 3 course: Advanced Practice. This focuses on my work on ‘Place’ and ‘Journeys’ in UK and Europe.
It complements my blog Visual Communication for Development looking at issues in my professional work in international development for the OCA Visual Research course.
