I’m delighted to say I have been awarded a Grants for the Arts to pursue the next stage – a publication – about the drawings, the River Severn and this fascinating landscape.

“What a fascinating and enriching exploration. The glimpse of your drawings makes me want to draw. Your text makes me want to walk to a river. The panoramic horizon makes me want to think far deeper and further than ordinarily.” Anthea Nicholson, author
