2017-2018

Since graduating from my MA at the Royal College of Art June 2017 I have been in exhibitions across London-

CLIFFORD CHANCE

I was one of eight printmakers to be chosen to exhibit at the Postgraduate Printmaking in London exhibition held at Clifford Chance, Canary Wharf. My prints Meanwhile and Not Yet were purchased for the Clifford Chance Print Collection.

Travers Smith
I was selected to take part in Travers Smith year long CSR Programme (2017-2018) with other graduates from the Royal College of Art and the University of Westminster. As well as showcasing the artworks the programme involved a series of professional development mentoring sessions and lectures in conjunction with the Serpentine Galleries.
My prints 'No More', 'Meanwhile' and 'Not Yet' won the RCA Senior Partner Award 2018. They were also purchased by a Senior Partner for his private collection.

HOLBORN LIBRARY

I teach Japanese Woodcut at Morley College, as a tutor I was invited to take part in a group exhibition of other practising artists/tutors from Morley. The exhibition was shown at the iconic Holborn Library.

As well as a Japanese Woodcut class I now teach Japanese Woodcut and Bookbinding at Morley College in collaboration with book artist Alex Czinczel. I am also learning Japanese which is challenging!

Later this year I will be expanding my classes teaching this nuanced technique at City Lit and the Art Academy.

Summer 2018

This summer I am planning to go to Finland to learn Advanced Mokuhanga (Japanese Woodcut) from Tuula Moilanen in co-operation with the Helsinki Artists Association. Tuula studied and taught in Kyoto, Japan for twenty years under the great master printmaker Akiro Kurosaki.

I will also be teaching Japanese Woodcut Summer School at Morley College and City Lit as well as Reduction Linocut and Multi-Plate Woodcut at Art Academy in London.

My print 'In the Fold of the Sea' has  been selected for this year's Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy. My work is next to David Hockney's and above Barbara Rae!

I will be showing my prints 'No More', 'Meanwhile' and 'Not Yet' at the "Japan" exhibition West Yorkshire Print Workshop from July to September.
