About the Artist RWB Journal

My work is informed by my personal faith, sense of vulnerability, bereavement, and, my personal experience.

My practice centres on addressing social justice issues of the human condition. I avoid making work of any individual person; so that neither, is the individual stigmatised, nor is the work unduly personalised.

Since January 2012 I have used this blog as part of my reflective journal.
Included in this journal is some of my documentation of my research; the underlined text provides links to web pages etc that have formed part of my research.
The Research Visits category includes some responses to gallery visits.

I was encouraged and challenged by the insight of a musical artist, she stated that:

The purpose of an artist is to unearth questions and concerns that require attention.


This strongly resonates with my own ethos and art practice - I want to make work with a purpose, work that will make a difference; to prompt the viewer to ask questions and to give attention to matters that that they would not have otherwise so deeply considered or engage with.
