Clairy Floofs Art
Long due :)
The website and I have had a change of name and a rebrand ready for a new chapter of my working life producing Art work that I love. Lots of work is now for sale on the website and more will be uploaded over the coming months.

Looking back is sometimes a good think for artists and here is an important installation that I worked on: http://www.city-arts.org.uk/as-we-move-from-shadows/

Long time no update. I have recently been working with The New Art Gallery Walsall on family workshops. Having gained my PGCE in secondary education last month. I'm looking to further my work in respect of community and family workshops.

The websites had a bit of a Spring Clean, and tidy up. And a large selction of recent works have gone up, which can be seen in the portfolio section of the site. Lots of happenings for me, with regards to looking at places to continue studying at, and trying to raise money to go study in London. Fingers crossed.

Hello everyone, long time no news!
Also Happy new year as I managed to miss that bit too!
Well I have been extremely busy recently, I've been to Australia for my brothers wedding, which partly explains a lack of news or updating. I've also been trying to get as much work done as possible to make up for being away. So theres a lot to be updated on.
Firstly I've updated my portfolio with the last big piece I did last year - "Pushing the Boundaries", and more updates and some drawings and painting works are on the way!

Keep your eyes peeled.

28th Septemeber, 2007 - End of exhibition
The Back to bikes exhibition at Shugborough Hall came down today, and it was a success over the months that they were up, Now time to plan what happens to these sculptures, and make the repairs, or see if a whole new train of thought will appear for the recycling art group that I'm part of.
Slowly but surely
Slowly but surely new images are being added to the galleries, both recent works and also older works, and coming in the next few weeks more works for sale.
