Asking Andover Residency


During the Spring and Summer of 2019 I will be working as Artist in Residence on the Asking Andover Project, with Andover Museum and CAS (Chapel Arts Studios), supporting local people to share memories, images, objects and artworks to gather together an interactive installation that documents Andover's recent history through Living Memory. The exhibition will be open to the public at Andover Museum until 31st August.

Exhibition with Jonathan Mansfield


I am currently developing new work for an exhibition with landscape artist Jonathan Mansfield. The exhibition, at The Pound Art Centre, Corsham, will take place in early 2020, and explore my fascination with embodied ways of knowing places, alongside Jonathan's emotional and spiritual responses. Full details to follow.

Let Us Dissent Exhibition


This September I will be exhibiting Walking Bundles (Doll Bodies) as part of this exhibition at spudWORKS in Sway, The New Forest. Let Us Dissent is a group exhibition of work by Associate Artists from CAS (Chapel Arts Studios), and will run from 2nd to 17th September.


Urban Rural Exchange

Since November 2018 I have been collaborating with London based artist Karen Wood, exploring the relationship between our walking-based arts practices. The year long research project will culminate in an exhibition at Spitalfields Art Studios in November 2019. Follow our progress on Instagram at @UrbanRuralExchange

Dark Mountain 15 - In the Age of Fire

My photographic piece The Distance Between Us has been included in the recently published Dark Mountain Book 'In the Age of Fire.


'At a time when the pace of change is accelerating, and the outlook for our world is beset by uncertainty, this book gathers the voices of witnesses from across the globe who are experiencing the shock of this new state of emergency. They speak of what it feels like to be alive in these times, what stories can guide our path through the flames, and what might arise from their ashes.'

A-N Bursary Exploring Rural/Urban Place Based Practice

I am very pleased to have received an Artist's Bursary from A-N this year. The bursary will enable me to devlop my practice as an artist who works in a rural area, exploring and building links with artists and curators in more urban areas, and attending The Rural Assembly conference in June 2019 at The Whitechapel Gallery and Wysing Arts Centre. See here for my A-N blog.
