After my 1 month residency in Islington Mill i exhibited these pieces of work alongside the Carbooty event. All the documentation of the residency can be found here.
I wanted the work to show the functionality that disused objects can have. Most of the objects were either wooden draws or bicycle wheels.
This is an on going project and I am still a hoarder.

My Lantern is made of cosmic coloured fabiano paper with a hand cut design on it. Looks great with a light in it. For photos from the other artists in the exhibition go here..
I exhibited a digitally print of the Record Shack in Walley Range for the ‘Street View’ exhibition curated by Skyliner at NQ2022. I have a soft spot for the Record Shack as it has always been there, is never really open but when you do go in it is a chaotic vinyl hunting adventure run by an old man.
Skyliner is dedicated to the pursuit of rare and fascinating art, architecture and history.
This print can be bought in the Skyliner Shop
Illustrated and designed a flyer for the Lone Wolf Ball.
‘A Christmas party for freelancers, homeworkers, lone wolves and good eggs!’

I spent 4 days working with cardboard inside the Bench Self Made gallery. I wanted to play around with the space and have fun with a material i don’t use that often and so i created some trees and a remote control cardboard owl complete with screen printed feathers.
The work was displayed alongside cardboard queen Lottie Smith, Krek, Moot, TeaOne and Muka. Everybody’s work was completely different to the others, making it an interesting show and showcasing the usability of cardboard. I think I enjoyed the making part with other people around the best bit.. free booze is free booze.
Thanks to Moot for organising the exhibition and Alistar from Bench for letting us get into the space and being generally awesome.
