    Holding Time - Update
    It has been such a privilege and a pleasure to witness these mothers, each at their own point on their journey of motherhood. Sometimes a mother is photographed once, sometimes more times, depending on the prevailing winds, technical issues, how we are both feeling and whether or not I can remember how to take a picture on that particular day.

    The Parlour
    With the launch of Holding Time in September 2017, podcasts will regularly appear on the Parlour site, along with portraits of breastfeeding mothers, written interviews and a blog. The Parlour is an experimental collaboration designed to permanently break the cultural stigma surrounding breastfeeding. Growing out of ideas formed in the inception of my photography project, Holding Time, it is a space for women to comfortably discuss breastfeeding. By combining a broad program of documentation and discussion through web streamed talks, social media and a body of shared images it is a political intervention, both real and virtual.

    Art as Medicine
    For anyone who has spent time in hospitals as a patient, visitor or healthcare professional, it is clear that good art enhances not only the immediate environment but also contributes not only to patients mental well-being but also their recovery rates.

    Bullet Time and Cyclical Time
    While the world reeled from the dizzying implications of this event, a different kind of ‘reeling’ was taking place in editing rooms across the world. The numbered frames were cut, frozen and slowed for re-examination.

Residency at City College

February to May  2016 I will be making work at City College as part of the AA2A programme.


The AA2A project provides placements for visual artists and designer makers in Higher and Further Education institutions across England. In 2015-2016, AA2A schemes will run 16 institutions, providing around 65 placements nationally. In the last 16 years, around 1,700 participants have had the opportunity to undertake a period of research or realise a project, using workshops and supporting facilities in participating fine art and design departments. I plan to use the time to develop new Floriculture pieces as well as eventually undertaking work towards my Marie Lactans project.

In 2015/16 there will be 16 institutions in England hosting AA2A schemes. Each participating institution normally offers places to four artists or designer-makers. Typical supporting facilities available to artists and makers include college lending libraries, access to lecture programmes, life rooms, etc. Each artist/maker has at least 100 hours access, which they can use between October and April. AA2A endeavours to provide support of up to £200 to artists on benefits associated with low income, if they need this to be able to take up their place (conditions apply).

AA2A Ltd is a social enterprise company dedicated to running the project. We have three part time members of staff - Wendy Mason (National Director), Georgia Rodger (National Coordinator) and Jo Warren (National Project Officer). The AA2A websites are maintained by Robin Keech.

AA2A is funded by Arts Council England through the National Lottery Grants for the Arts programme and through contributions from the individual institutions. 

You can visit my page on the AA2A website here to keep up to date with my progress. I will also be posting regular updates on my Facebook page and twitter account.
