Collaborative projects are of interest to me and provide outlets to explore creative ideas beyond those reflected in my regular painting practice. Not unlike curatorial work, these projects offer avenues of creative exchange and opportunities to mentor and be a student at the same time. A recent collaboration between my daughter, Gillian Davies and I, resulted in the shadow puppet production of Whimsy and the Bog (below). The story, character designs and music selection are by Gillian. Technical assistance was provided by myself. The puppet performance involved both of us, working together.
