Talks & Presentations

One of my passions is discussing and talking about the arts. Having owned my art shop now for over 10 years I've always enjoyed discussing different art styles, theories, art history, modern art trends and the philosophy of aesthetics.

This led me to becoming a speaker as well as demonstrator and I now enjoy visiting schools, art societies, nursing homes and clubs where I talk about a variety of subjects.

I am pursing this interest further as I am now an MA student at the Open University where I am studying Philosophy at Masters level (previously completing my degree in art) with a focus on aesthetics, the philosophy of the arts. I hope to continue on in the future to a PhD exploring my core interests on:
The effect art can have on health and well being
Art and emotions 
How aesthetics within a town can affect a community 
How upbringing and ones status within society can effect their view of 'beauty' and what is 'beautiful'
