My art practice and writing are very much an integrated activity, I see no difference between the two. The artworks utilise text, usually in the form of verse. I hope to be able to write scripts that in turn make moving images with strong narratives that demonstrate an extension of the static representations created in the form of art pieces. The excitement of a blank sheet of paper with all the promise of converting it to a work of art is exactly the same in both arenas. The actual act of writing creates visual images in my mind before the words are written but the storyline and plot are arrived at by lots of research and many hours of thinking them through. The intended end product, to my mind will be a work of art. BUT that remains to be seen.
