May 2016: Derbyshire Open Arts @ Banks Mill

Derbyshire Open Arts was a great success this year at Banks Mill over the Bank Holiday weekend. I met some lovely people and received some really positive and complimentary comments from the general public.

People seemed to be really interested in my work and the narratives and symbolism behind my pieces. Throughout the event I was working on the Hecate project and people were genuinely impressed with the idea and couldn't wait to see it complete; I found this very encouraging. I always enjoy these open studio events at Banks Mill and enjoy seeing peoples reactions to my work. One thing that I have noticed is that I have no target audience which I think is a good thing; young and not so young, male/female, people from all walks of life seem to mostly understand an appreciate my work. I like the idea of my work being accessible to any and everyone.
