The roots of creativity

The lovely James Fenwick did an interview with me last year…if you have a moment, perhaps you would like to ponder over it. Extract from the Roots of Creativity website, Art Porn “There’s not much I’ve been certain of in my life but I know that I’m serious about my art. No one in their […]

Chloe Roach and the Spiders from Hull
