Oblique [Territories] 2016
A new line of enquiry sees the material I've collected whilst walking being combined as a collage, and includes the use of 'Ento Pins' using in mounting 'specimens' for 'examination'.
The work is sculptural in nature, considering the way we see and use the liminal landscape we live in.

Beating Stick - 2017

Taken from one Swiss Mountain walk 'Beating Stick explores notions around map making, aerial photography, of place and how our perceptions change when looking close up or far away; what we 'miss', what we 'see'.

'Catching Words' at Wordsworth Museum 2015
'Language, Walking; Inducing Creativity' is the title of an artists talk I'll be doing for the Bloomsbury Festival in London on 23rd of October. 
I'll be considering the influences of writers and poets, including Wordsworth and Virginia Woolf, on some of my recent work.
As part of the event the outdoor installation work 'Catching Words' will be on display during the day, last seen in 2015 at the Wordsworth Museum, in Grasmere, Cumbria.

Objects from Triumph Rd

Walking the perimeter of 6 Triumph Rd where I'm doing my Artists Residency (UnO Nottingham)I've been interrogating the environment finding objects that speak of place and the people who work there.
This is the start of an investigation that will culminate in a work that will be part of the final UnO Nottingham Art Show at the Djanogly Gallery in June this year.
