The exhibition at John Jones has now finished and with it comes a trace of sadness but also many positive things to conclude this blog with. It has been fantastic in terms of feedback, I have had my first reviews, one from our very own editor Andrew Bryant which is rather amazing!

Projection really did project me out there and project my work.
It made me start a blog through which I have met and had dialogue with a number of interesting people. For John Jones, the exhibition with all the blog feeding in created a buzz of excitement for them and there were a lot of positive comments from staff and visitors alike. Their enthusiasm and professionalism did not wane and I have grown very attached to them all.
I have since been preparing for the next group show I am in at PHOENIX BRIGHTON, with Louise Bristow , Peter Bobby, Rowena Easton, Mark Hewitt, Jane Ward, Rich Whitewhich opens next Friday for a preview, 4th September until 11th October .
Floor Plan explores buildings, architecture, and the physical, aesthetic, and psychological interactions between these structures, their inhabitants, and the surrounding communities. www.phoenixbrighton.org
We are going to be having a panel discussion on the 23rd September with Zoe Whitley, Curator of Contemporary Programmes at the V&A, around the central themes in the ‘Floor Plan’ exhibition, and in particular, the interrelationship between psychology and architecture which inspires further thoughts on the themes I am concerned with in my work.
There are several more exhibitions to go this year and each one teaches me something new and makes new connections. It is a joy ( sometimes laced with anxiety!)
And so now fellow travellers I leave you with wise words from Graham Crowley.
‘ Being an artist is a complex and demanding business…’
Ain’t that the truth
