I create videos in response to places I visit and collaborations – I often work in collaboration with poets or musicians, which I find an inspiring part of the creative process.
Most of the following videos showcase aspects of collaborations, and feature montages of my paintings with the work of people I’ve collaborated with, including composer/cellist Atzi Muramatsu, poet J.L. Willams, author/poet Louise Palfreyman, pianist/composer Jane Gardner, poet Alan Spence (Edinburgh’s Makar 2018) and most recently musician, Donald Ferguson.
