Boxes of Curiosity was born out of a need to explore the notion of confinement and restriction through the assemblage of old and interesting found objects. Delving into our curious fascination with death, religion and the macabre, via gothic Victoriana, the art of taxidermy and a bit of theatre for good measure, it seems one object leads to another and a story emerges, sometimes of its own accord.

I'm very pleased to have been invited to join The Thames Group, a collective of thirteen working artists, each with a direct link to the River Thames. The aim of the group is to produce a body of mixed media art inspired by one of the most important literary works of the 20th century, TS Eliot’s modernist masterpiece, The Waste Land.
Fully supported by Arts Council England, the work will be shown in an innovative pop-up gallery designed by award winning architect John Lyall and is already booked into five venues this year, kicking off with Metal Culture's Village Green Festival on 10th & 11th July 2015.
I'm working on a collection inspired by the poem, three of which will be chosen for exhibit. See my Thames Group Page for pictures.
