Chapter 1 : And so it begins...

Updated: Sep 4, 2019

I know your time is valuable and you may have clicked this link by mistake or just to be supportive so here is the brief version:


- If you don’t document it then it didn’t happen.

- I got some funding.

- This Blog will be regular and host some art.

I need someone to keep me on track, someone to keep me honest.

It’s not that I don’t want to do all the exciting things that I put in the funding applications or that I won’t do it, it’s just that sometimes I have terrible anxiety that makes me put stuff off.

So to keep me on track Ive put someone else in charge of documentation and making my work. I’ve put internet Matthew in charge. He can talk to total strangers and make his art look exciting sometimes. He doesn’t have public panic attacks.

This year I have been very fortunate, I’m supported by East Street Arts and Compass Live Art and I have DCYP funding from Arts Council England.

So what is this blog going to be?

- Livestreams




I have been pretty terrible at documenting my work or keeping any real records of what I have been doing at all so this is more for me than it is for you reading, but hopefully along this journey you can see some interesting ideas and ask any questions you have about anything I am doing.

More to come.
