The Supper Room: Hakeem Onibudo at Greenwich Dance

The charismatic Hakeem Onibudo invited me to join him and his vibrant dance company Impact Dance, at The Supper Room, Greenwich Dance, to capture the evening through Live Drawings of the event, I was to draw a large sketch that the guests to The Supper Room would be invited to interact with by adding their thoughts and comments to.

It was a wonderful evening of Hakeem’s visually arresting choreography from the fabulous Impact Dance, delicious Caribbean food (from Island Flavours) and music you want to dance to

Some of the drawings will be at the next Art Show that I am taking part in:

My Work on Display at Greenwich Dance

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

Beyond Front@: Bridging New Territories

beyond front@ 1    Beyond Front@. 2beyond front@ painting

As Resident Artist  at Greenwich Dance (GDA) I drew the dancers of Beyond Front@ from Slovenia, Austria, Croatia, Hungary and the UK during a four day Dance Communication Lab at Greenwich Dance in 2012. Over the last year they have continued to meet in the host countries and created a dance, In Reference To The Robbers Cave, with choreographer Rob Clarke.

Performance: In Reference To The Robbers Cave. 27th September 2013

My drawings of the process and an oil painting are on display at Greenwich Dance for the next few weeks. All work is for sale.

September 8th 2013

The Suffolk coast has always been a favorite hideaway for me and my kids. It began when I inherited my Uncle’s caravan when eldest son (now 19) was a toddler. I found a campsite on the Suffolk coast, allowing us the freedom to spend long summers on the beach and in the countryside. I no longer have the caravan but occasionally still manage to escape the metropolis for a weekend by the sea.
