This Autumn, I received my first commission request. It was an absolute joy to create this work (above) – it has been such a long time since I had drawn in my style on such a large scale. For this piece, I focussed on creating an intense atmosphere, highlighting the light and shadow in the […]Read more "post-MA"
“Diaspora Vapor” is a collection of works which aims to further the research, experiments and ideas initially explored in “Dyfed Forests”. By working in monochrome, I assess and manipulate mixed media to create an image that concerns the concept of space and distance, balanced by paths within macro-micro compositions inspired by the landscape. By utilizing […]Read more "Autumn Exhibition"

Aberystwyth School of Art has put together a fabulous online exhibition of the postgraduate and undergraduate degree show work which would have been shown in May 2020.

This was before the time of the GoPro-gyro! Anyway, I hope you enjoy some footage of this wonderful place that […]Read more "Video: Gozo, Malta 2016"
On my daily walk today, I did a bit of filming. This is my first attempt at using Adobe Premiere Rush, so I welcome feedback (please)! I didn’t have much footage to work with, but I thought how it turned out was quite nice. Enjoy a short clip of spring in Aberystwyth.Read more "spring animals"
With the e-exhibition looming (one month and a week to go!) I am still working constantly in my sketchbook … although I am having so much fun, I feel as though I need to be dedicating more time to my final pieces (series of 9) rather than doing exploratory work in my sketchbook. Perhaps, due […]Read more "Sketchbook Experiments"
