Artfinder Studio Video Interview

Being a visual language, I normally find that it's best to let art speak for itself. So when Artfinder asked me if I'd like to be their guinea pig, and be the first artist to take part in their new series of informal, videoed, artists' studio interviews, I was a bit wary - but then thought, 'ah, what the hell!'

Like many people, I tend to cringe whenever I see or hear a recording of my self, so when I first watched the video it was through the gaps between the fingers of both of my hands, which were firmly grasping my face. Apart from a few exceptions, most artists are visually articulate but not always verbally – unfortunately, I now realise that I'm clearly not one of those exceptions. I would like to blame it on the fact that the piece had to be edited down to just three minutes – but no, it's just me not being able to think faster than my mouth.

Incidentally, the opening still shot of me was taken by the talented photographer, Paul Michael Hughes, for a feature about yours truely, that will be appearing the new University of Northampton prospectus - which comes out 6th April.
