Writing About Art

Do you find writing about your art practice hard? Does the thought of it make you want to pop your head in the sand? You’re in the right place if you’re an artist and you struggle with writing.

As a writer and art school lecturer I’ve been guiding artists on how to put ideas into coherent words for over 15 years. Don’t lose your audience with waffle or confusing art speak. I can help you tease out connections and think through the ideas you’re exploring in your work.

I have helped many artists over the years to write their personal statements and bios.

Artist Statement Writing Service


It’s one of the essential pieces of written comms you can’t do without. You’ve got about 300 words to sum up who you are and what your work is about. It needs to be clear and concise to keep the reader engaged.

The price includes:

  • an hour on zoom 1-2-1 with me to discuss your work

  • preparatory research in advance of our meeting

  • a 300-word written statement sent to you by email

  • a follow up call to discuss

  • one edit, if necessary

  • the zoom recording, emailed to you after the session so you can reflect on our discussion about your work

1-2-1 Coaching

£90 for one hour

We’ll meet for an hour on zoom and talk about your practice. It’s a focused discussion about the ideas you’re exploring through your art. I’ll help you to get more clarity on your journey and what your work is about. The price includes the zoom recording of our discussion (emailed to you afterwards), plus a brief written summary with suggestions on things to read/watch/listen to develop your ideas.

‘I can't thank you enough for helping me through this sorting out of my narrative... I'm really glad I went through this process.’ Mary Jo Matsumoto

‘My brain just isn’t wired for writing so I was so grateful that you helped me put my jumbled ideas into some sort of coherent structure for my artist statement. It helped me with my practice too. I’ve become more confident in what I’m doing and saying about my work.’ Heidi Evans
