Eileen Hogan’s Artist Not-in-Residence exhibition in The Garden Museum

I was delighted to be commissioned to make a video for Eileen Hogan's exhibition at the newly renovated Garden Museum in London (May-Sept 2017). Info here: https://gardenmuseum.org.uk/exhibitions/eileen-hogan/

Eileen Hogan is one of the artists I interviewed for my PhD research on Sketchbooks. A video I made about her sketchbook practice sketchbooks of Eileen Hogan is part of the installation that grew out of that research. Making another video of her most recent sketchbooks was fun. They are amazing!
