    Biography

    We are interested in how to earn a living, bring up children, and also sustain a creative practice. For the last few years we have been investigating this through residencies (with Lincoln Art Programme), research fellowships (Golden Threads) and, most recently, an Arts Council-funded project titled Artists As Parents As Artists.

    We have presented live work at galleries and festivals including Nightjar Festival (Cambridge), Norfolk and Norwich Festival (Norwich), Tate Britain (London), Wysing Arts Centre (Cambridgeshire), Town Hall Galleries (Ipswich), Royal Standard (Liverpool), and Rio Bravo (Copenhagen).
