I am intrigued with the margins; those gaps between inside and outside; between two and three dimensions; between conventional wisdom and the outrageous. Therefore, it's not surprising that I choose to live and work at the edge of Eden amongst the relict landscapes of the North Pennines. Visit www.julescadie.co.uk for full details of my artwork.

I believe that contemporary visual art practices should be in the foreground of sustainable development and transition, and I want to be involved in such projects. The Wonderbase, which is the basis of my studio, & Lodestone are two such activities that I'm developing. From October '09 to January '10 I had an installation called 'Transition' in an empty shop in Alston (click here to view).

Since early spring 2010 I have been building and using a 'wild studio' hidden on the fellside close to my home, logging the experience in a blog and collecting work to create an exhibition.

Although I paint mostly in oils, I use any media that's around, from natural grounds and pigments to acrylics, from digital imagery to living plants. I also incorporate reclaimed materials.
