    ... New photographic installation by myself (on the first floor), and the book 'The Witch House of Canewdon' will be signed and on sale... Obby Robinson will be reading poetry live, as well as talks and video pieces by other artists and curators.

New Blood July 2013

This was my first visit to New Blood in Spitalfields for the Design Graduate Show. I normally visit the Truman Brewery Shows, but have to say I was impressed. Would like to add some of my favourite student cards and work here - and I have never met such keen and enthusiastic graduates.


I hope that you all find work in the future.
