James Elkins: Artists with PhDs illustrations


These are the final dozen illustrations as delivered to James Elkins for his 2nd Edition of Artists with Phds book (Published May 2014). It enabled me to successfully complete my M.A. by registered project for which I received a distinction in January 2014.

My thanks to James Elkins for a ‘revealing’ experience although I maybe now know more than I need to about Fine Art Phds and their academic validity:-)

City Arts: Artist-in-residence 2005



No not a prison this time but a lovely big old converted warehouse off Radford Boulevard that City Arts moved into some time in 2005 I think. I along with six or more other artists were given free studio space in return for interacting with users and contributing to City Arts.

These photos taken at the time.

City Arts now on same road as Nottingham Writers Studio in Hockley.
