It’s with great pleasure to announce that ‘We Dream of Blue Whales’, the triptych charting my journey on the Sea Dragon from Iceland to Sweden, will be migrating to dark Northern waters for a month. It will be showing at Left Bank Leeds in a new exhibition focussing on whales: ‘Here be Whales’ in association
It’s almost a year ago now when I got a call from the BBC asking if I’d be interested in being a hand double for a 1930s costume drama, Mapp and Lucia, to be shown at Christmastime 2014. The ‘hand job’ as it became known, would involve standing in for an actress playing an artist
