I was really pleased with the way A Feast for the Eyes turned out. My piece was positioned behind the display table decorated with selling pieces and other items usually found in a Dutch 17th Century Still Life. I was so happy to see my piece taking centre stage as it was visible as soon as your entered the gallery, I also loved the way it seemed to be part of the still life set up on the table. There were some beautiful pieces especially the pewter dishes and the textile birds. Go on and gorge yourself.....

Tonight is the Private View for an exhibition called 'A Feast for the Eyes' at Gallery II in Bradford University. It starts at 4' O clock! I have a piece from my degree show exhibited called 'Bud" 2007. It is a selling exhibition with inspiration from the Dutch Still life paintings of the 17th Century. I think it will be a very luxurious and opulent themed show with stunning photography, embroidery, prints, jewelry and glass.

At the moment I am experimenting with star wars figurines....I want to submit some images for the Leeds based Zine 'Feral'. The theme is Sci-Fi. I was thinking of places them around the house in mundane areas where they are secretly battling unnoticed by the people living there...hmmm I will post my results soon....

Travelling was really a life changing experience for me.....I plane-ed, bus-ed and tuk tuk-ed my way around Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, East Australia, New Zealand and South America. I cant comprehend some of the things I've seen. I have tried to do justice to the sights and cultures ive experinced through my photography. All in all an amazing trip.
