I’m happy with how my performance and installation/mural went during my Soapworks artist-residency a few months ago. There was good junk/found object articles in the space which we were encouraged to use during our residencies which worked well for me.
Stage-like installations which encompass painting, collage and found objects employed
as a backdrop and props for my poetry performances is something I’ve explored a
lot and which I will continue developing.
You can watch my performance from the Soapworks Hidden Door Live episode below.
I’ll be performing live on YouTube and Facebook as a featured artist for Hidden Door
Live Season 3 Episode 4. The episode will kick off LIVEACTION at 8pm.
I will be performing a selection of poems live from the Soap Works in Leith to conclude
my mini-residency which begins tomorrow.
I’ll be sure to share the link as soon as I’ve got it. Be sure you tune in if you like the good
I took inspiration from legendary anti-hero Charles Bukowski’s incredible, often hilarious
collection Burning in Water, Drowning in Flame cover design when designing this image.

Although predominantly online, you can view it in person too whilst it’s on (14-28th August) by appointment - just get in touch with me and I’ll arrange for the exhibition to be opened up for you (contact me via the Contact page). Please observe social distancing when in the gallery and wear a mask in the corridors and lifts. Hand santizer is located in the entrance lobby and the lobby of each floor. 🙏🏼👌🏻🛀
