Comics, walking as a creative act and independent public art.


I have created comics about walking, landscape and architecture for nearly twenty years, having published with Blank Slate Books and having had several books and touring exhibitions (nationally and internationally) funded via Art Council England. My research involves walking and drawing simultaneously and the value of productive failure to neurodivergent students.. I also have a public art practice in which I create illustrative sculptures from fly-tipped materials.
