I moved to Staffordshire over a year ago now, having become familiar with the area. It is wonderful taking in the beautiful country side and views that seem to inspire the area’s creativity. Once the Covid pandemic is over, myself and my family can enjoy the museums and cultural history. I already collaborate with local artists and look to do so with local communities too to add to Stoke on Trent’s already expanding artistic scene. I look forward to exploring forgotten urban spaces to celebrate Staffordshire’s history with contemporary art and ‘Street Curating’. This is a difficult time, however from the challenges come the rise of artistic expression and I am delighted to be a part of it.
