I am pleased to announce that The British Library‘s special collection of Artist’s Books has recently acquired a hardback lay flat first edition limited print run of my Artist’s Book: ‘Sequence’. This is now the fourth special collection that has acquired ‘Sequence’.
You can see ‘Sequence’ at the MA SELECT SHOW at The Camberwell Space Gallery, Camberwell College of Arts, 45 – 65 Peckham Road, London, SE5 8UF, from 11th July – 23rd August 2019.
Delighted to present a talk on the subject of Arts & Wellbeing Practice at the Maker’s Fair held in the DIY Space for London, Sunday 12th May.
There will also be a zine making workshop presented by Lu Williams, a ‘Being an entrepreneur Artist and Maker in London’ talk by Tere Chad, plus makers stalls selling zines, illustrations, prints, ceramics, jewellery, and more.
The DIY Space For London is a cooperatively-run social centre located in South London, just off Old Kent Road, who offer low cost creative facilities, meeting rooms and social spaces, as well as space for screenings, talks and performances. DIY for London operates via a members’ club model so that everyone has an equal say in how the place is run. The space works to promote the ideas of mutual aid (helping each other) and cooperation (working together). Providing a welcoming space for everyone, including those whose voices and contributions are not always heard or appreciated.
I am pleased to announce that my Artist’s Book entitled ‘Sequence’ has been acquired by the Women’s Art Library, Special Collections at Goldsmiths University, London.
The Women’s Art Library began as an artists’ initiative that developed into an arts organization publishing catalogues and books as well as a magazine from the early 1980s to 2002. The main purpose however was to provide a place for women artists to deposit unique documentation of their work. WAL collected personal files that functioned together as an alternative public space to view and experience women’s art. Thousands of artists from around the world are represented in some form in this collection.
As part of Goldsmiths Library Special Collections, the Women’s Art Library continues to collect slides, artist’s books, artist statements, exhibition ephemera, catalogues and press material in addition to audio and videotapes, photographs and CD-Roms.

I have an article entitled: ‘Artists’ Books Now at the British Library‘, that appears on page 55 of the September – October Issue No. 120 of The Book Arts News Letter, downloadable from: HERE
Looking At Looking / Sequence Reframed
This piece is about analogue photography, memory and identity, neuro-diversity, intergenerational change, sequence, reframing the past into the present and the art of looking, as in looking at the processes of looking which in turn reframes the past. The way this particular piece is presented invites the viewer to pick up the book and hold it in their hands while leafing through its pages. The act of handling the book activates the piece. As the viewer looks down upon the book they can see their own hands echoing a similar handling of the book as demonstrated in the photograph below. The hand in the shot belongs to the same women in the photograph. The age difference symbolises the passage of time. What I hope to encourage is a dialogue on the importance of ones memories for a sense of self-identity. How does memory-loss impact ones sense of self-identity? And how can one reframe ones memories so that they may better serve oneself in the present moment?
