I graduated from Grays School of Art with a specialism in printmaking in 2012. I have continued to make and exhibit work as well as take part in artist’s residencies.
Volunteering with project ability has been a great experience and something I’d look forward to each week. Assisting the artists in making their work, I have been able to use and share my particular skills and knowledge of materials and processes. It never ceased to amaze me the immediacy and application of the materials being used. Paint, pen, pencil to paper, the most basic of materials, the rewards created within such a small amount of time, to me, proved the ingenuity of the individual and their creativity.
Whether the artists are making to enjoy a process, communicate, record a memory, analyze an object, or just make something, Project Ability facilitates and nurtures that. This is why I was attracted to the role and why being a part of the team was such a pleasure.
