Delighted and honoured to have been successful with an Arts Council England Grants for the Arts funding application to develop my work and train to make a whole lot of neon!

An amazing material with over 100 years heritage, I’ll spend most of this year designing and making new works which combine neon with materials such as sea glass, video tape, stained glass and plaster. The new works will form part of a touring exhibition between September 2016 and February 2017 – dates and venues to follow.

The images above show design ideas, artwork developments and test pieces as I develop as a neon artist.

Huge thanks to neon workshopsHartlepool and Middlesbrough Council, East Durham Creates and House of Blah Blah for their support of the project.
