I spend a lot of time around artists. They are really interesting people (most of the time) .
I started this site as a blog to collate all the conversations I was having with them, and to share that with new audiences.

I run Orso Major an award winning gallery which was at Waterloo til 2016. The gallery now operates online and you can see it here orsomajor.com
I've run artists open studio programs, worked with arts charities, organised open exhibitions, curated exhibitions in business spaces as well as within the gallery context, helped artists prepare to work with galleries, portfolio reviews, been a juror for art competitions and a whole lot more.
Having studied art history and trained in curating I consider myself first and foremost a curator, below you can read how to work with me if you manage a space looking to introduce art.
CURATING SPACES - WORK WITH ME
If you have a venue where you would like to host an art exhibition, I can work with you to curate a program of exhibitions. It is important to me that an art exhibition for your business has the desired impact which is often footfall and in turn revenue. On a project such as this we can cover marketing of the exhibitions' program to ensure that your business objectives are met with the project. Also provided is information about the art work displayed for you to share on your website or intranet. Studies have shown that art in the workplace has a beneficial effect on employees’ wellbeing and charges your brand with your company’s values. Commonly art in offices is displayed in public lobbies, communal areas, break out spaces, and meeting rooms.
I draw on my extensive network of artists, art dealers and curators to select the best choice for your exhibition at work.
