In many a walk

At evening or by moonlight, or reclined

At midday upon beds of forest moss,

Have we to Nature and her impulses

Of our whole being made free gift, and when

Our trance had left us, oft have we, by aid

Of the impressions which it left behind

Looked inward on ourselves, and learned, perhaps,

Something of what we are. (PW  V 143)

Walking Through the Sands of Time

Walk On previewed in London at PM Gallery (see information on the right hand side of this page). The exhibition was curated by myself in collaboration with Art Circuit Touring Exhibitions (Cynthia Morrison-Bell) and Alistair Robinson, Curator, NGCA assisted by Janet Ross, and supported by ACE and LEADER+. I also have work in this exhibition - see below - and wrote an essay for the catalogue. For me, this is the culmination of three years research as a writer (developing from research for my PhD), an artist and a curator.

Walk On at Highgreen

I was invited by Dove Cottage (the Wordsworth Museum in Grasmere in the Lake District) to make new work in 2012 to be placed in the exhibition gallery alongside the Journals of Dorothy Wordsworth. For this commission, I created six new works, all small in scale (no larger than the pages of the Journal itself).

‘In Temperley’s Tread - the Birdlife of Durham's Moor and Vale’ comprised a series of five upland bird and wildlife guided walks, staged over four weekends in July 2012 through Durham’s upland summer landscape along a historic route.  The inspiration for the project was renowned ornithologist and botanist, George Temperley, who in his introduction to A History of the Birds of Durham (Temperley 1951) suggested a 45 mile upland route to experience the true majesty of Durha
