I am delighted to have been awarded the prestigious Inches Carr Creative Development Award 2022.  The timing is perfect for me and I am excited at the prospects that this period of in-depth creative research will bring - I’m also curious to see the new work as it emerges... I look forward to sharing the various stages of research and development over the coming months via social media.
