Foreword to the catalogue 2022
On my extended stay in south-west France this summer I documented my time painting small watercolours each morning. It turned out to be the hottest summer on record. I aimed to capture the changes with different times of day and night that reflected the growing intensity of that heat as it scorched the land and all those in it. If you know this landscape, you will recognise the transformations: if you don’t, I hope they will be brought to life in these pages.

Message on a Bottle – Ashcroft Arts Center Hampshire 2016
This group show explored the nostalgia of the book and the printed word in a digital age.
My work traced and responded to the timeless tale of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island.
Whilst reading a book, time no longer conforms to the laws of physics, it stretches and overlaps. I have not yet had this sensation of complete immersion with any digital device. For this reason, I decided to honour my love of turning a books pages by creating a series of watercolours overlaid directly onto the pages themselves. They are the preserved remains of tales told and hint at those still to tell.
Rooftop Exhibition – Hamden Gurney Westminster London 2016
Japanese Inspired wall hangings – wood, paint and coloured paper.
This series of abstract works was an attempt to capture the vagaries, fragility and buzz of contemporary urban life.
