The Creative Process (2016)


Through intimate interview, fourteen artists from all walks of life reveal their most personal experiences, and along the way we learn - why make art?

I met an incredible variety of artists while making The Creative Process, and found it fascinating talking to them about their work. The film was partially funded by the Arts Council, previewed at BFI Southbank, and is now used by the British Council to promote Liverpool culture.

It screened across the Merseyside region in 2016 in galleries, educational institutions, and independent kinos such as Tate Liverpool, John Moores University, and the Small Cinema.

If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.
