I am a published poet who performs his work regularly in Oxford, London and the south-east. I have worked as a poet in residence at a nearby prison, and have run poetry workshops for people of all ages in schools and community settings; I also offer one-to-one mentoring for poets wanting to develop their writing and live performance skills. I am interested in working with other artists to create collaborative projects that combine spoken and written word with music, dance and visual arts.
Voice tuition ... a great way to develop yourself, your voice and your singing ability. Anne's one-to-one sessions are designed to help an adult sing with confidence to encourage joining a group, or a choir, or to develop the art of singing a song solo at family gatherings or at a public event. Whether you are a complete beginner with the "can't sing" notion or an "I can sing but not in front of anyone", to the voice that needs gentle adjustment to achieve more power and stamina, Anne will create a series of one-to-one sessions around the person and the voice.
My practice explores the mysterious, unfathomable and supernatural through multi-artform events and exhibitions of paintings and sculptures. I am particularly interested in the relationships between people, and between people and their environment, and how these are mediated by beliefs and supernatural or spiritual experiences.
My outdoor events are inspired by religious rites from various traditions, and aim to involve the audience as participants as much as possible, drawing them into a liminal space from where they can re-evaluate the Present and re-invent the Future.
In this context I undertake commissions to help design alternative weddings, namings, funerals and other sacred ceremonies.
I'm the Course Administrator for the two-year, part-time History of Art and Creative Writing courses at Oxford University Department for Continuing Education.
I have an MA in Art History and have been a freelance curator for five years, showing contemporary artists from the UK, USA and Austria in London and Oxford. I write about contemporary art and the history of art.
