Working in collaboration with other visually impaired artists at Yinka Shonibare's Guest Projects during Oct/Nov 2017 gave me the time to experiment and provided mutual encouragement to begin and display a new body of work.

The drawings shown here are examples of sketches that were part of a drawing installation shown at the studio. They form part of a larger series I am currently undertaking on the London Underground.

Fast and furious, these drawings are often made over one or two stops and capture moments of everyday life across each line of the network, a city under ground.

As part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival, I will be undertaking a live participatory drawing installation in Foster's exciting and expansive space in Gateshead on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th March. The venue will provide inspiration for drawings which include the activity and architecture of the building, and its spectacular views of the Tyne. The public will be invited to add layers to my drawings, linking in with the main theme of the festival - the relationship between the individual and the crowd.
