Exhibition Tour in the Czech Republic May – September 2015
In May 2015 I was invited by SONS, a leading VI non- profit organisation, to visit Prague and to attend and show an exhibition of my drawings and paintings at their multi-disciplinary arts festival at The Verrmissage, Ostrava.
This was part of an annual event Art Days of the Blind in Moravia, which aims to profile the work of a wide range of visually impaired practising artists from around the world. My work was on display in Castle Lesná in April, in Ostrava in May, Opava in June, Zlín in July, Olomouc in August and Nový Jičín in September. The event was held in cooperation with the regional organizations of the Czech Blind United (SONS), cultural institutions, and the local authorities.
I was recently invited to appear on In Touch, BBC Radio 4, to talk about the artist Sargy Mann

Going Underground: Tales from the Tube
I was filmed and interviewed as a “tube artist” by children from Gateway and St George the Martyr Primary Schools as part of this project about the history of the London Underground. Made with film-makers Sav Kyriacou and Matt Rosenberg from Digital:Works, this film is regularly being shown on the Community Channel on TV.
