'Delusions of Grandma' tour with Arts Council England. 

I am currently on a DYCP (Develop Your Creative Practice) funded tour with Arts Council England, which involves visiting 7 sites of personal and family significance - Merthyr Tydfil, Cardiff, Cambridge, London, Glasgow, Grantham and Margate - gathering material and developing image, writing and film, while also hosting truth workshops.

Some work has been shared already, with more on the way this Autumn.

You can next see my work publicly at 'Queer Art(ists) Now' at Space Station 65, Kennington, London - I will be attending the private view on Friday 16th September and would love to meet people who have been engaging with my work online. The show runs for 3 weeks, until the 8th October, and is jam-packed with lush talent so go and enjoy it!

Coming up in Autumn I will be hosting an art-based radio show every last Sunday of the month with Margate Radio.
