Roker...
This kind of makes working all night an absolute pleasure. So beautiful and such a joy. Just me, my sketchbooks and Roker.

Preview Night at Tynemouth Station...
A few photographs from the opening of the Traces exhibition, held in the beautiful setting of Tynemouth Station, with live music from The Acoustic Smugglers, featuring my very nervous self on banjo! The evening was a great success, organised by curator Kathryn McCandless, and a great opportunity to relax after all the hard work!

Traces: A Book Apothecary Exhibition...
For the past few months I have been working on a slightly different project. Usually working to create a 2-Dimensional illustration I was approached to create a piece of work within the bridge space at Tynemouth Station, as part of the Traces exhibition. In keeping with the theme of my suitcase piece I again worked around the idea of found items collected on walks along the beach and their own journey's onto the Roker coast. I created a driftwood wave and hung the found items over a bed of sand. It was a great experience to work alongside some lovely people, and I really feel that I have learnt a lot from this project!
