I look forward to participating in ‘Re- & De-‘, a research and residency project with colleagues and practitioners Dr Kyung Hwa Shon from the Royal College of Art, London and Yutaka Inagawa and Tamaki Ono from Onomichi City University, Japan. The project is supported by The Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation and will begin in Japan from 16 July to 13 August 2022.
It was fantastic to be invited by Mindy Lee, curator of Blyth Arts, to hold an artists’ lead event with co-exhibitor Isabel Young as part of Fictions held at the Blyth Gallery Imperial College London between 08/06/22 – 07/07/22.
This is the second iteration of Fictions a two person exhibition project begun in 2020. The exhibition showcases new work exhibited for the first time.
This has been an exciting opportunity for Isabel Young and I to work with the curator Mindy Lee to expand notions and approaches to observed, recorded and imagined personal narratives in the space at the Blyth Gallery.
Fictions – Blyth Gallery Imperial College.
The show also includes the collaborative project RE – a unique collaborative artists book lead by Richard Nash and Gary Clough, including contributions from Isabel Young, Adam Knight, Susannah Haslam, Kyung Hwa Shon, Anna Beel, Alkesh Parmer and Linnet Hannan.
RE: Artists Book – 2022
I am very excited to be exhibiting again with artist and RCA colleague Isabel Young in the second iteration of Fictions at Blyth Gallery, Imperial College London, opening in June 2022.
Identification is an ongoing body of work which focuses on the nature of ID object classification tables and object ID silhouettes.
I am currently working on a series of nine 6 x 6-inch canvasses of constructed tables of embroidered objects.

I am delighted to be invited by drawingisfree_ org, to join 14 other practitioners as part of the Drawing Projects UK PechaKucha style Symposium discussing the impact of lockdown on practice and drawing.
The sketchbook and its inherent mobility are and remain to be an essential and consistent aspect of my practice and working life. The sketchbooks created in lockdown became a surprisingly expansive format to engage with and outline journeys without moving.
There have been four main series of shaped narratives developed over the last four years – Blue and White Shaped Narratives, Coloured Shaped Narratives, Three-Legged Narratives and Small Object Narratives. The works explore and integrate notions around the sense of shapes within shapes, objects within objects and the relationships and hierarchies between the constituent parts.
It was a great pleasure to be invited to visit the Bond and Coyne studios in South London in November to a lead a drawing workshop. Bond and Coyne led a visibility campaign and film for the RCA’s Graduate Diploma in Art and Design programme, and the workshop was a direct result of this relationship. It was a great opportunity to expand and investigate further approaches to the teaching and the language of drawing working with art and design professionals in a staff development context.
