big news

I was absolutely thrilled to receive a letter over the weekend confirming that my application to Grants for the Arts was successful, meaning that the project has been awarded funding from The Arts Council.  I am officially now supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England!  This is a really big step for me.  As well as the financial support, which makes this whole project much more comfortable to undertake, there is a stamp of approval for my work that is a real accolade.  I'm excited but also quite daunted!

The residency will span the next six months, culminating in the exhibition weekend in September and after that the work will tour a number of galleries through into 2013.  Currently dates are confirmed for October at South Square, Thornton and then January/February at The Ropewalk, Barton-upon-Humber.  There are more venues and dates yet to be confirmed.

I'm very much looking forward to visiting Spurn later this week and really getting going on things.  


  1. That's great, congratulations! Hope I can get to see the exhib somewhere.
