New Year 2017…

Absolutely thrilled to have been chosen to exhibit at the MA & Postgraduate show at the Atkinson Gallery, Somerset in February and March.   Some great news to kick off the new year. In May 2017 I will be doing an exhibition and some workshops at Portsmouth Cathedral - very excited to have got Arts Council funding for this work.   Lots more soon!

A year in the life of a

beach

Many years ago in 2003 I did a photographic project taking as many pictures of Hill Head beach as I could in a full calendar year.   The camera I had then was not as sophisticated as modern digital ones and I had to reduce the quality of the images a fair bit as we were all on dial up connections then, but it still looks reasonable and is hosted on another one of my sites.    Hill Head - a year in the life of a beach.
