Lino curt print for 20:20 Print Exchange Hot Bed Press Manchester. The print studio I am a member of is The Art House, Wakefield.
I love drawing, layering and working with the process of chance!
I use industrially printed papers which promote charities, mainly the cause to invoke the notions of giving out kindness out in the world.

Panda, I received from father Christmas at my dad's works Christmas Party.
What joy! He's awe bare in places & recently had to re-attach his nose, plus make him a dashing re-claimed wool collar, also to keep his neck from wobbling! But he's just as loved. He is languishing on my families welsh blanket heir loom.

Studio: new artist books & book art for BELONG Installation at Westgate Chapel for Wakefield Artwalk on Wednesday 27th July 2016.
The book art is inspired by the 'Words Are Not Enough' collaboration I took part in earlier in the year. The audience were invited to take a boo/s away with them. I was instantly attracted to a book cover as it was a mirror image
pictorial cover devoid of words. I loved it.
And so it slowly evolved and transformed in my studio.
I have for as long as I can remember had an strong pull towards old, discarded things. Creatively I love the challenge of working with something a bit awkward, seeing the beauty.
The military weapons belt I have had for many years, I thought it looked useful for when I was out sketching it could house my art materials... making peace not war!

My Grandfather stood on the right. I thought he was an old, old man. He was 22 when he fought at the Somme. Unknown compatriot. Charred, blackened, decimated tree.
The above images are from Silent Witness, a seminal project which I began during Artist in Residence 2012. From a young I have been intrigued by the photograph of my Grandfather. Being given little information about him. All I understood was that that he fought in the First World War, which as a small child seemed such a long time ago. His face in the photograph has carried with me through my life. My grandfather died when I was a few months old. Being mustard gassed in WW1 contributed to his death.
My Grandfather was a TA.
My grandfather fought with the DLI.
My grandfather was gassed.
My grandfather was a stretcher bearer.
My grandfather was buried alive for three days.
My grandfather was saved by Canadian Troops.
My grandfather came home.
The war continues.
May we all move forward with a patient mind.
May we all move forward with a gentle heart.
May we be united in truth.
May we be united in peace.
May find stillness still with love.
