This is the output of work created during a week long residency at Juniper Bespoke, Falmouth (UK) in 2019. Created in response to a series of interviews, The Shape of Things to Come is a collection of stencil based screen prints that provides a snapshot of thriving independent businesses during pre pandemic times in Falmouth, Cornwall. Nearly three years on, this project is was shown for the first time at Potager Garden and highlights both the fragility and resilience of this local community.

In Between Waves
travel project

Above: collection of images informed by a travel sketchbook.

This collection of images is based on observational drawings and studies made on location during a surf trip to Mirleft, Morocco. Inbetween waves I used my time to draw the people, places, plants and fauna I encountered which upon returning, I digitised and graphically arranged into a variety of different outputs to document my experience.

Slow Residence

Slow Residence is a culmination of ongoing works inspired by my immediate studio surroundings. Located at the Potager Gardens near the Helford in Cornwall, my focus is on the community and individuals that inhabit the space alongside the plants, fauna and food both grown and served in the cafe. I am interested in exploring and abstracted shape, form and texture through a variety of process including painting, drawing, mark making, stencilbased screen printing printmaking and digital collage. It is a very slow and ongoing residency which is evolving organically. Please check back regularly to see WIP.

What Is Bamboo (II)
research / studies

Above: study I, II, III in gouache, studies VI and V in charcoal, VI in pen and ink

The project is an extension of visual research and consultancy work I undertook for BAM clothing who utilise bamboo in their products. The title is borrowed from a chapter in Bruno Munari’s book ‘Design as Art’ where he asks the question initially, what is bamboo? and is a continuation of research into the subject. The collection of works are abstract deconstuctions and studies based on the form, structure and molecular composition of the bamboo plant.
