ARTWORKS I am currently working on a project with an interim title of SHORELINES. This incorporates monoprints and photography and is a development from the work in my exhibition in October 2018 called 65 MONOPRINTS. This project is ongoing and the developments are posted here from time to time.
I became involved with making prints after helping start a social enterprise in Kafountine in the Casamance region of Senegal where I spend time each winter. This is called Kafountine Lino Printing and aims to help local artists to develop new markets for their work utilising the medium of Lino printing.
You can view work from my 65 monoprints project along with links to previous work, photographs and books through the menus on this page.
PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECTS The Diola page is an ongoing project for 2019/20 documenting contemporary daily life and rituals of the Diola people centred around my home on the Casamance region of Senegal. This will eventually become a book, made in collaboration with Dembo Sane´ who is a Diola living in Kafountine. Due to the COVID pandemic, this project has been extended through 2021/22.
The Edges page is another ongoing project for 2020. I live very close to the Millstone Edges in the Derbyshire Peak District and after walking these edges many times, I've finally decided to make photographic response to the area. There is an interim book of images accessed through the BOOKS page.
The Birds in my garden page is new and shows some photographs of birds attracted to my small pond in my garden in Kafountine. There is a book on the BOOKS page with more images - called The Kora Workshop Bird Spotters Guide.
The BOOKS page contains links to some of the books I have made using Blurb. This isn't an invitation to purchase these - its is simply to provide the opportunity to delve deeper into my work.
