My salmon painting has swum onto BBC arts home page.


The Hexham Salmon Experience is a new augmented reality project which is allowing nature lovers to see and find out more about Salmon in the River Tyne at Hexham, through a new interactive experience.


As part of the Great Exhibition of the North 2018’s N18 artists development programme I have been working with another N18 artist, local Hexhamtv news vlogger Peter Woods. 

Using an original watercolour 2D painting of a Salmon, Peter had it converted into a 3D object and linked it to a scannable code.


A new exhibition board on the bank of the River Tyne near the Hexham boathouse promotes the project to local people and visitors. All you need to do to see the Salmon experience is download the Zappar App from your App store, head down to Tyne Green, and point your smartphone at the code on the sign. 


You can see a video clip about The Hexham Salmon project here


Peter plans to use augmented reality in future projects and any organisation wishing to talk to him about possible future projects should contact him through the Hexhamtv Facebook page or via email at


This project has also now been publicised by the Hexham Courant 







I have a series of sea life drawings in
