Biographies

James Steventon is Director of Fermynwoods Contemporary Art, having previously been Education Officer for the organisation since 2008. James is an artist, writer, and runner, based in Northamptonshire, a lecturer at The Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design at London Metropolitan University, and Digital Special Interest Representative for Engage.

Sophie Cullinan is Sudborough Green Lodge Coordinator and an Education Coordinator for Fermynwoods Contemporary Art. Sophie’s conceptually driven, interdisciplinary art practice, includes installation, performance, writing, photography and filmmaking, frequently exploring themes of domestic endurance through the use of non-art materials. Sophie has exhibited at widely across the UK and has created participatory socially engaged events for Tate Liverpool, Anglian Water and the National Trust. She is currently a practice-based PhD candidate at Royal College of Art in the School of Arts and Humanities.

Emma Davies is an artist and educator whose artistic practice spans disciplines that include Performance and Live Art, Installation, Book Sculptures, Painting, Drawing, Mixed Media Construction and Theatre Devising, Production and Design. Emma’s approach to artistic education is underpinned by her understanding of social pedagogic principles and she has worked in arts education with young people for over 20 years. She is a Creative Projects Associate at Royal & Derngate, she has worked as an Artist Educator with NN Contemporary Art and most recently with Full House theatre in Bedford.

Jessica Harby is an artist who mixes the delicate, the brutal, the absurd and the serious. Her practice encompasses drawing, installation, video, sound and performance and explores malleable collective and individual identities using subjects such as modern attitudes towards immigration, the story of kidnapped heiress-turned-terrorist Patty Hearst, her family’s recipe for egg coffee, and Arnold Schwarzennegar’s gurning face. Jessica is co-creator of the zine Tappa Tappa Tappa and one of six artists selected by Contemporary Visual Arts Network East Midlands for their two-year project Document.
