After several successful exhibitions with The Love of the North, they have asked me to design an artwork for their 2020 calander. Loving the warmer days of summer I created a school of herring design for the month of July. This brilliant calander is approx 21cm sqaure in size and celebrate the North East of England with a differnet local artist each month.

The 200 fish Project
I'm one of artists taking part in the Time and Tide Bell #200Fish Project. The art project aims to raise awareness of the biodiversity of teh North Sea by bringing stimulation of thought and conversation about humankind's relationship with the sea's, past and future. Referencing the issues of global warming, climate change, sea level rise, ocean acidification and over-exploitation.
I painted the 162 Sand Goby, Pomatoschistus minutus, the 140 Meagra, Argyrosomus Regius and the 113 Twohorn sculpin, Icelus Bicornis.
