LK243 UnderSail Exhibition Tour

I spent 5 weeks onboard the Swan during the Tall Ships Races 2011 as artist in residence, with a one month on land in North Uist and Shetland to start getting thoughts and ideas down on paper. After a further six months the exhibition was ready to tour starting at an talla solais in Ullapool, Scotland in April 2012.

The exhibition has then travelled to:
Taigh Chearsabhagh, North Uist, Outer Hebredies, Scotland, 2012
Northern Print, Newcastle, 2012
Galleri VOX, Bergen, Norway, 2012
IMPACT print conference, Dundee, 2013
Wordplay, The Mareel, Shetland, 2013 - exhibition and presentation
Doverodde Book Arts Centre, Denmark, 2014
Cley14, Cley next Sea, Norfolk, UK, 2014
Translating Travels, Edinburgh Printmakers, 2018
Translating Travels, Kristiansand Kunsthall, 2021
