Artist with a participatory, enquiry-led practice seeks an alternative to the “more people == more better” metric for measuring success.

My meeting with artist and musician Rebecca Lee happened quite by chance, but turned out to be a really fortuitous encounter. We introduced ourselves at a special moving image event (Film Free and Easy) at Primary (the studio space where […]
This past week we have been installing our contribution to Platform 2016 at Edinburgh Art Festival alongside The Brownlee Brothers, Jack Saunders and Dorian Jose Braun. Monday was spent transporting Paloma’s ceramic work from her RCA studios in London to […]

Since my last post, virtually all my time has been taken up with the Artist as Mother as Artist project. This was a jointly curated exhibition (and accompanying events) with Sam Rose, and we were over the moon to receive […]
I’ve been speaking to so many people I decide to use my last day to walk around the clay trail again, there are a few offshoots from the path that I’m told can get me in closer. I need this […]
The Ceramic History Society archives are not quite where you would expect them, in a building shared by Imerys (the company that currently operates the working mines) staff gym on the site of a disused pit. There are rooms upon […]
I took the trail from Eden around Carclaze and over to Wheal Martyn, this trail skirts round three pits Carclaze, Baal and the mica dams. The ‘sky’ tip sits above Carclaze and can be seen from Baal and Mica – […]

Research trip to the Wheal Martyn Museum & the white alps of St Austell, 2016.
I am weaving between historic traditions on a very personal and shared journey that engages my practice with local artists and the global art world that passes through Asia.
During the first day of scheduled ‘Projects and Demonstrations’ at SGCI, myself and artist Sarah Jane Lawton, based at East London Printmakers, presented our collaborative print project ‘Movement & Gestures’. Our printmaking intervention presented an opportunity for participants to make […]
In 2016 I was awarded an AN Travel Bursary to go to Fotofest: one of the oldest Photography Biennials in the world. The outcome was new friendships, new contacts and a whole new comprehension about the inner workings of the museum world.
I am so grateful for a-n for awarding me the a-n professional development bursary. This is a great help towards taking my practice to the next stage. My practice explores the in between areas of fact and imaginary, still […]
During the SGCI conference, some exceptional printmaking was exhibited in spaces and galleries around Portland. A personal highlight for me was seeing the outstanding experimental letterpress work of John Risseeuw, who received this years’ SGCI Printmaker Emeritus Award. His work, […]
