Selection of artworks over years
I was employed for 13 years (2003 – 2016) as art teacher at Kaimes Special School in Edinburgh for pupils on the autistic spectrum.
A range of artworks completed by young people were exhibited at the Gallery on the Corner (run by Autism Initiatives in Edinburgh, but now sadly closed).
Kaimes School Animation Project
I also set up and managed Kaimes School Animation Project, which produced over 25 award-winning animation films.
The films were produced in collaboration with Jim Stirk (Animation Jam), Claire Lamond (animator) and Conrad Molleson (Hoda Productions).
One of the largest animation adventures I directed is a 2 – year programme of film –making (Unsung Stories) to create tell the stories of some of Edinburgh’s multicultural population.
As part of the VOYAGE project, there are also a further 5 films completed in June 2016:
