I will be installing a wall drawing 'live' at the Text Festival in Bury opening on the 2nd May at the Bury Art Museum - watch for further details.

A new essay has been published in 'The text festivals: language art and material poetry'; Ed Tony Lopez and published by Plymouth University Press 2013; also available through Amazon

THE DARK WOULD:
Work is featured in a new anthology working at the interstices of text art and poetry, edited by Philip Davenport and published by Apple Pie editions. It is available through Amazon....

A site-specific commission is installed as a permanent feature of in the Prints and Drawings Study Room at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London

I make different forms of texts using simple but often ambiguous words and phrases, mostly through printmaking and drawing. The written word holds many paradoxes, not least those of absence and presence. There are gaps and overlaps between reading and viewing, text and image, the hand and the machine. I try to create breathing spaces in which we can pause and look back at language. Whole narratives can be compressed into a single word or familiar phrase. The drawings' resemblance to plans and blueprints reflects the strange provisionality of written language; the things about which we write are always elsewhere. I work only with Times New Roman the default font and my own handwriting to minimise questions of typography.

In 2010 I co-curated with Ana Fonseca an exhibition of extended printmaking in Lisbon ...and then again... featuring the work of 31 British-based and Portuguese artists whose work is inspired by print.

I live and work in London, where I have a studio. I am a member of East London Printmakers, an artists' collective based in Hackney.

Many of my prints are for sale.
