Re-imagining objects collected from recent beach walks I’m transfixed by the translucence of things. Lit from below, I can see through shells. New layers of surface and texture emerge, bringing new landscapes, perhaps the moon? Photographed closely I can see […]
In time things accumulate. It is not always easy to notice. When dust starts to collect, it is only once it has gathered in swaythes, the sun comes out and casts new light on it, that it gets noticed. Grains […]
Hospice patients find nights difficult, often experiencing hours of sleep-lessness. Family members, too, spend time through the night with their loved ones and this time can seem very long and very isolating. As part of my Leverhulme Residency at Durham […]

ART, LIGHT AND WELLBEING Taking time to reflect on work so far, it is great to look at what has been achieved and how the audience has responded to the installations completed over the last 12 months… KEY ACHIEVEMENTS: • […]
The central idea to the road trip in Iceland in 2016 was to spend every night on a west facing coast to appreciate the full length of each day and catch the lasting hours. We were travelling west every day, covering […]
The vastness and remoteness of Iceland attracts me as I search to distance myself from urban speed and to get on geological time. This attempt to find a slowness that I associate with landscape is not really ‘slow’, as Iceland […]
The theme of impermanence has always captivated me and it seemed only a matter of time before the subject of light would come into my practice as it did during my first trip to Iceland in 2014. The late autumn […]
Untouchable yet ever present, I find light to be one of the most exciting and enigmatic of subjects. I visited Iceland in July 2016 with the help of the AN travel bursary, to experience the length of the Arctic summer […]
Presenting the En’Light’en project at the Velux Symposium in Berlin, then engaging with the audience was a fantastic opportunity to share ideas on the theme of light and wellbeing and to explain the aims of the En’Light’en project to a […]
This international symposium had as it’s focus how light can be used to create buildings that promote human health and well-being.

In the day to day world of being obsessed with different processes, one of the questions that is often asked is simply, why? What is it that drives me to keep working with the materials I do? What excites me […]
Exploring the relationship between painting movements and the direction of travel.
Painting with light at the Wolsfon Institute, Durham University. A study of the natural fall of light in the main atrium space led to the development of a series of ‘Prismatic Light Shelves’ that reflect and refract light patterns beyond […]
This series of six posts explores my adventures through the light filled summer days of Iceland, close to the Arctic circle.
My my, we are well into February aren’t we. Art-wise what have I got to show for it? It certainly has been a patchy month. Having received 2 bits of news, (one bad and one sad), I have to confess […]

The Ouseburn Open Studios weekend hosted an exhibition entitled ‘Process’ at the 36 Lime Street Gallery. This provided an exciting oppportunity to exhibit work in progress and some experimental models produced in the studio as part of the En’Light’en project. […]
