Shape Arts Exhibition – All Bound Together

I am currently part of an online exhibition curated by Shape Arts. All Bound Together is an online collection of artwork by disabled and non-disabled artists.

I have a digital and fully accessible version of my zine ‘Delay’ in the exhibition. You can read and experience it here

As well as reading the zine, you can listen to an audio described version.

I also did an interview with South London Press about the exhibition. You can read this here.

StoryBox – Discardboard Exhibiton

Currently I am in a special Exhibition involving cardboard. The exhibition is called Discardboard and it is taking place at the Forest Centre Plus art space in Edinburgh. In total 40 artists are exhibiting work and I am presenting Story Box – a comic book made out of cardboard.

Story Box is an experiment in taking comic books away from the page and the digital and presenting them as a physical object. Cardboard seemed like the perfect medium to do this. It is customisable, durable and cheap.


I developed a 4 page story that could be read in any order. The content of the story reflected the experimental nature of the Story Box comic book. The story involved a young boy who could not communicate. 

The exhibition will be held on 17 – 26 January at Forest Centre Plus, 38 Castle Terrace, Edinburgh, EH3 9SJ.

Quiet Forest Exhibition – Forest Cafe – 6th of August 2013

Several years ago I designed a poster to promote a series of gigs to save the Forest Cafe in Edinburgh. The cafe has now moved to a new home at 141 Laurieston Place in Edinburgh. On the 6th of August the excellent words and performance group Inky Fingers are having an exhibition of installation Poetry at the new Forest Cafe. I will have some artwork in the exhibition – A poem comic collection called Bad Teenage Poetry. I will post up some images of this later.
The exhibition is called Quiet Forest and info can be found here.
