Hayley Skipper

Studying for my BA in Fine Art Sculpture at Wimbledon School of Art
led me to London in England’s South East where I was based for ten
years. I studied for my MA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College
of Art & Design graduating in 2001.

During my time at Wimbledon I met Laura Cull, Amy Cunningham, Naomi
Dawson, Sam Dowd and Sam Steer and have developed a number of public
projects both with fellow SpRoUt’s and through other collaborations
often in response to the city itself or a particular situation or
context for making artwork.

Active in artist led initiatives that engage in critical enquiry into
the relationships between sites, communities, cultural practices and
issues of interdisciplinarity I have developed numerous exhibitions and
collaborative projects, often working with students from the University
of the Arts.

My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues
including Rooseum Centre for Contemporary Art Malmo Sweden, Gasworks
Gallery London, Mead Gallery Warwick UK and the National Maritime
Museum London.

For the last ten months I have been based in Cumbria in England’s
North West, where I am working for Forestry Commission England on Art
Roots Grizedale, a project to redevelop the UK’s first art in the
environment programme established in 1977.
