Foreign Exchange

How do you decide the value of a thing?


Puzzling over this as so many artists do, combined with actual life, led me to devise a peculiar pecuniary project.

I’m going to make my own money.


The project is still in development, but it involves creating my own artist’s currency, exchangeable at a rate tied to the British pound. The idea is to offer exchanges in future should the buyer wish to do so, whether at a fixed rate of exchange or for other artwork.

Artists’ currencies aren’t new. Follow me on Pinterest as I gather together examples of community currencies, artists making their own currencies and artists working with money.


Oh, and please get in touch with suggestions!
