 Beverley Addy


I use words and images to explore today's society in abstract and narrative ways. I like to explore the dilemmas of modern society from a personal and wider perspective using a mix of traditional and digital media while constantly looking for new ways of sharing my work.


I often work with others, such as schools and the community, helping them develop new skills in digital media while using creative exploration to express themselves, bringing together exciting content.

Lives, my series of challenging short arts films inspired by abusive relationships, and funded by the Arts Council England, is currently screening and coming up is the House of Abuse, a touring walk-through public art installation from the same inspiration.

 With North East collaborative Stemistry,  I write poetry and prose responding to various cutting edge science. responding to various cutting edge science and am part of Art Station – a collaborative of Kirklees artists tasked with bringing Huddersfield’s grade I listed building train station alive with an exciting and eclectic mix of work by ourselves and others from the town, in a continuous programme of exhibitions and live performances around the concourse.

Most of my work is a response to how the world works - from scientific breakthroughs to social dilemmas. I love taking real issues, from real people and their real stories and telling them in new and exciting ways through art.

I’m inspired by the most ordinary and extraordinary, and express that by the most ordinary and extraordinary of means.
