Having been born in Scotland, grown up in Northern Ireland, trained in England and living and working in Wales - I have a strange accent and I'm not really sure where is home other than Britain. I originally trained in design and weave (tapestry weaving) and have exhibited widely in Britain and internationally. I have completed many large and small private and public commissions as a tapestry artist and continue to do so. However, since the 1990s I have taken an interest in digital work and over a period of time and some specific training, have developed my interest and skills in interactive media. I regularly work with schools and community groups on a wide range of projects incorporating many different areas of digital work - photography, video, audio, animation, graphic design, etc.
I have always used photography as a part of my work as a visual artist and in recent years this has become more important to me. ADPhotowalks (www.adphotowalks.com) is a recent venture into presenting my view of the world around me in a way that perhaps describes more of myself than of the places the photographs are taken. The images are intended to be viewed in sequence and with the accompanying audio files - these play automatically on my www.adphotowalks.com website. The places have not been identified but if anyone is desperate to find out where they are, they should enquire by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
My photography over recent years has also influenced my digital giclee print images and some of these can be seen on my website www.acmd.co.uk along with my tapestry weaving and project work.
