“Having spent the last twenty years in Wirral making creative things happen, I am delighted to have been able to support Ron’s Place for the last three years. I am a contemporary craftsperson and my own creative practice has spanned 3 decades and three different countries since leaving Edinburgh College of Art in 1990. The motivation behind my work comes from being the child of post war parents, Scottish thriftiness and an avid watcher of Blue Peter! In the last few years, I have been involved closely with community arts projects and with arts administration in Wirral – working with the Williamson Art Gallery as press officer and the Culture Team at Wirral Council as partnership and participation officer during the Liverpool City Region Borough of Culture in 2022 and most recently heavily involved with two community projects – Saving Ron’s Place and Wirral MakeFest.”
