Videos

Over the years, I’ve enjoyed creating the odd video of what happens in the studio and in my exploration of local colour pigments. Some of these give a behind-the-scenes glimpse into an aspect of the studio’s practice, others are little tutorials, some celebrate the successful creation of a pigment colour, and a couple are just for fun. Given the many years they span, the identification of their origin ranges from different names and studios, but they all come from my artistic practice and where the years have taken me.

Please be mindful that given their span of years, circumstances and opinions may have changed or become better informed. Still, I’ve very much enjoyed hunting down and reviewing these videos, and I hope the viewer will as well. Feel free to post any questions or thoughts in the comment section provided after each video.
