I have won the Arts Club award at the Royal Academy 251st Summer Exhibition for my work ‘George Michael’.  It is in Room VIII which was curated by Bob and Roberta Smith, the show runs until the 12th August and ‘George Michael’ is available to buy online


I have worked with Gross Net (Philip Quinn) in his new music video ‘Gentrification‘ taken from the album, ‘Gross Net Means Gross’ Net’.
Frank Deserto on has said ‘The video, conceived, directed, and starring Gross Net and Grace McMurray, is a swirling haze of color and shadowplay, all set against swells of city life. Quinn gently strums his guitar and performs the track, with McMurray covering him in silken spiderwebs, a fitting allusion to the song’s take on love and loss against a city landscape.’


I have been shortlisted for the Zealous Stories Drawing Competition with the project ‘Woven Polyhedra’
