Last year I did a talk about my work at Bradford College. After the talk, the Arts Officer from the Bronte Parsonage Museum in Haworth approached me with a possible offer of a Residency. After a few exhaustive months of securing funding, I’m now planning a Project, which will culminate in an Exhibition within the Museum Collections later on this year.
I am intrigued by the mystery that surrounds the Bronte family, and by the Moors that surround their once family home. Wuthering Heights was one of the first books I read, and is still a favourite of mine. Not least because I have personal associations with it. I remember my nan giving me her copy of the book, when I was about ten years old. I drove from London to Haworth last week to begin my research in the Museum Library. There were many inspiring objects on display, but I am still in the early stages of my research, and am not sure which direction I am going to take yet.
