I am an artist based in Liverpool and Preston working primarily with sculpture. Currently studying an MA Course in Preston. This blog is a collection of things that interest me and make me think as well as a place to explore my own ideas.

"We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is: each the other’s opposite and complement."
Hermann Hesse (via likeafieldmouse)
"Literature concerning self-acceptance tends to ignore the greater issue of societal acceptance"
A person who experiences emotions differently than the majority can feel isolated — especially when they’re pressured to conform. Emotions are our deepest and most personal gifts — and the last place anyone should meddle.
I encourage spectrumites struggling with emotional regulation to pursue strategies to boost their quality of life. Keep a mood journal and look for patterns. Experiment with what helps mood regulation and document the activities that enhance your wellness the most.
We each can be our own master, our own specialist, notebooks and calculator in hand. Even when our brains muddle over feelings — we can use our strengths as data gathers and pattern recognition experts to craft our own wellness.(via autistic-scientist)
1st gif made and uploaded (finally). The idea for this gif came out of my instillation of work in the ‘OPEN’ exhibition in Preston.
At the time i was thinking about and wanted to play around with ideas of causality and the phenomenologies of perception, time and location.

"Whoever, at any time, has undertaken to build a new heaven has found the strength for it in his own hell."
