Yes, the plot includes a deep love story that often causes me to shed real tears with my audience.

“This show would make a great musical”.
Many have told me this but where to start? If you want to help me or just enjoy collaborating on musical storytelling, say hello.
“This story runs like a pantomime.”
If you are a new Producer looking for a new panto., let’s talk.
“Art, for it to become useful, need only shift one viewer’s perspective” (Grant 2009).
During Grant’s Art Therapy outreach work, that viewer can be the artist.
In Grant’s public art shows, viewers are both the audience and a potential market.
Studio opportunities exist to draw but so few opportunities present themselves to share art directly with individuals who may appreciate it. During a recent Literary Festival, Grant had such a chance and was able to gift a new ink pen drawing of his letterforms to someone whose love of lettering shone so brightly from his carving folio and flowed so enthusiastically with his live spoken words.
Moments of such sharing have untold use and for Grant, they have always been part of his language. Lettering creates its own beauty, whether the letters forms words or combine to make shapes (letterforms).
Below is a pencil drawing, by Grant, of a sculpt which may not have seen the page had the sculptor not indulged themselves in the freedom of using wet clay. On Grant’s Twitter is a video of an unfired clay sculpt under a gentle rain shower – one which returned the clay to slip but gave rise to the artform of the decay-video.
Such morphing of shape, material and message is a central theme through many of Grant’s recent artworks – many of which will soon be available for tour.
