Thanks to a Twitter conversation with Andrew Martyn Sugars, fellow a-n blogger, I am starting a blog to track progress over 2018. I am not sure how I am going to measure progress but am going to give it a go and if I manage to spend more time in the studio this year, then that will be progress of a kind.

Really excited to announce that I have been commissioned by Dover District Council to make an artist’s film to portray Russell Gardens in Dover Kent, the only example of Thomas H Mawson’s garden design in the South East that is open to the public.

I’ll be starting a separate blog to chart progress.


So while waiting to hear whether my work will be included in an exhibition in Dalby Forest I have been sorting out stuff in the studio and getting rid of old work that does not speak to me … I am keeping key pieces that marked a change in direction or that still have a resonance of some kind. In the process though I have been coming across work that is asking for more attention! Like ghost prints …

This is one I found and finished with brush and ink.


So I have until 22nd to finish some new work and photograph it for inclusion in a proposal…..

This is what I have so far…


I don’t want to jinx things by saying too much other than that there is hopefully also a related video piece.


Just thought I’d put up an image of my postcards showing as part of the Devonshire Collective postcard show, in Eastbourne, to celebrate their first anniversary.

Thank you to Judith Alder for the photo.
