I'm busy documenting and reflecting on my two recent 2016 solo shows Assembly at Bankley Gallery and New work at &Model with thanks for the photographs from professional photographer Jules Lister.

The closing of my solo show, Assembly, in April 2016 represents the conclusion of a year-long Arts Council England Grants for the arts research and development award and I'll soon be evaluating the year.

In addition I'm delighted to have received an A-n Professional Development Bursary and an award from Oppenheim-John Downes Memorial Trust which will allow me to reflect and build on the developments I've made over the past twelve months including lots of visits with curators to talk about my work.
