Born in England 61 Studied Fine art, Art history and Anthropology then I found myself in Korea
I now favour peformance work, spoken word and improvised pieces. I do still use a lot of photography, collage and assemblage work( both old fashioned scissor tape and computer methods) Inspiration? How would I know? What do you think I am? An artist?
