I became involved in DAN because I believe that arts events, and networks of practising artists, have a huge potential to influence the communities in which they are based. This influence is different in kind from other voluntary activities and can engage absolutely anyone in understanding and improving the place where they live.
Whilst I mainly focus on project management and event design for DAN, I was eventually inspired by the artists to try some photographic work. I am intrigued by the fact that the land under and between our urban developments in Dartford is ancient. I like to play with juxtaposing folklore stories and mythology with images of modern discarded items found in green spaces.
