Bev Broadhead is a visual artist and an active member of her community.
Artist member of The Green Fuse Collective @thegreenfuse.
Coordinator of Norfolk branch Artists' Union England (AUE) www.artistsunionengland.org.uk
Living in a rural, coastal town, much of Bev’s work is influenced by psychogeography and situationist theory. ‘The faster we walk, the more ground we lose.’(Iain Sinclair).
Bev is curious to form a relationship with the surrounding environment, be it physical, psychological, or political. She hopes to highlight interdependence, frailties, and imperfections.
