I have managed to interview two of my planned four artists and hope to meet up with the third next week. It is starting to look a bit like I might be able to get all the things that I had planned done. I just need to plan two trips to places to explore the idea of collecting specific material and then do some work before producing my second Zine of work produced, by the end of this summer.
Not an Exhibition Catalogue
In 2020 I produced this zine booklet of a collection of paper drawings that are inspired by a Hound tooth Jacquard knitting pattern. In my work I use technology to work with imagery and create stencils. Jacquard card patterns are an early form of computer programming used to direct a pattern produced by a knitting or weaving machine.
You can see a copy of the zine here.(more…)
I am pleased to announce that I have had a print ‘Four layer’ accepted for Leicester Print Workshop’s ‘Small Print International 6’. The exhibition runs from Friday 28 November to 13 February 2021

For the past two years I have been working with Bollo Brook Youth Centre on a number of creative projects including ‘Who we are Who we aren’t’, about the young people’s experiences and thoughts on race and racism.
We have now created an online representation of the work
After taking time out from print fairs I have been tempted by this one at Nottingham Contemporary.
This spring Nottingham Contemporary launch their first Print Fair, with over 30 stalls of independent artists, designers, collectives and galleries from across the UK. Celebrating all things print, shop a variety of illustrations, artworks, textiles, zines, paper art and more.

Join us for a mix of art, music, film, drop-in workshops and pop-up talks as we explore the work of Steve McQueen and how artists are inspired by the city.
Last year I had the opportunity to work on a project with Bollo Brook Youth Center, London. The work was funded by the Equality Trust.
I am pleased to announce that some of this work will be shown at Uniqlo Tate Lates this month 28 February 2020 at 18.00–22.00 . I will be there during the event.(more…)

I worked with pupils from Outwood Edge Primary School in Loughborough, we used a picture by Patrick Hughes to inspire our work. His work used three dimensional paintings to play with perspective, we then built our own individual model rooms. We added personal touches and then put them all together to make one large construction of the whole classes efforts. This final stage was a spontaneous development by the class, carried out without prompting.
