short film

I am visual artist primarily working in drawing, photography, film, found object sculpture, installation, sound and sometimes paint. I like fiddling with old tech like tape, film, and analogue synths.

I write music which I record and perform, mainly with voice and guitar. I also compose avant garde music and improvised sound, electronic music and DJ from old vinyl. I have worked solo and in bands. I write songs, poetry, fiction, cultural commentary and reviews.

I have worked in museums and galleries and public art institutions for over 20 years, primarily focusing on visitor engagement, managing and motivating teams and the cultural heritage retail offer. In my professional positions I have been an active advocate for equality, diversity and inclusive access.

I am passionate about mentoring and encouraging new talent and engaging young people and diverse audiences with all forms of cultural and creative expression.

I have fulfilled freelance commissions for portrait photography, website design, logo and poster design. I have voluntary experience of magazine editing, live PA sound, festival stewardship, running toddler groups and youth clubs.

sanguinearts has been online in one form or another since 1999.
