The Story so far…..

Outlook & Curriculum

I trained in Fine Arts, painting at Ravensbourne College of Art in London, and later worked in commercial advertising in a small, family run company called SaleSkill in the UK as well as the USA. This immediate contact with clients opened up possibilities to question what is the role of art in the community, apart from just selling ideas and products. I transferred from marketing to teaching which made the excitement of conveying art to an audience who were so much more tangible and versatile to absorbing new ideas. After initial training at The Tate Gallery, London I transferred to Spain and began a research group called EnterArte in 1997. Together, we have aspired to innovate the connection between the identity of the artist, from one to ninety-nine years of age, into common forums such museums, professional artists, and public institutions. More recently, I have returned to my first passion, which is painting but I continue to find links with other art forms, and especially individuals who practice dance, performance, language and education in general who want to build platforms in the local and global community.
