I have written a few statements about my work and practice but always felt that they weren’t expressing what I wanted to say. I decided to book a session with Melody on her artist statement writing class. I’m so glad I did. I had a 1:1 session and Melody put me at ease about writing straight away. We looked at structure of statements, target audiences and examples of various types of statements. Through handling and observing my work we generated key words which helped me build on my original statement. Melody was very friendly and encouraging and I now feel that I can write more confidently about my work and structure it for the right audience. I also received an audio recording of our session which has been extremely useful to revisit. I would definitely recommend her session for anyone who, like me, would rather make work than write about it.
