In spring 2013  I also had a 3 day residency at CMR developing the work in progress `The Lost Soul Retrieval Machine.`In early 2013 I participated in Jesse Leroy Smith`s `The Dark Rooms` show in the former  Passmore Edwards building in Helston cornwall showing my light sculpture .In late 2012 I also exhibited my light sculpture at the christmas CMR exhibition , and became a member In 2011 I began collaborating Jose Navarro making puppets for his production - Children of the Sun.

II have also recently worked with `Wildworks` on their recent show in London called `Babel`,providing a multimedia input into the research and development phase of the production.Work with  ISTA at the Eden Project in an exclusive shadow puppet workshop for teachers and students takes place on the 21st April 2012 for more details please visit their website; http://ista.co.uk/

Later this year (2012) am about to begin a project with Kevan Mainwaring  on his new stage production of the Windsmith novels  and The Steampunk Theatre Company .     Initial Performances start in Scotland but there will be performances in other areas of the UK.




I am currently one of the artists and writers helping to develop `The Story Republic`  in schools across Cornwall .Using the work of  Charles Causley  to develop a visual arts project for secondary and and primary students . Current work has taken me into  a developing list of schools , including working with the animation club in Penryn College.


Here are a list of schools I have recently worked in providing Shadow puppet making workshops;

Mawnan smith school

Humphry Davy School

Lanner Primary School Cornwall

Wendron School  Cornwall

Nanstallon School   Cornwall

Bradford  primary school  North Devon

Bridgerule primary school  North Devon

King Charles Primary School  Cornwall

Stockland School  East Devon


All the workshops using and making shadow puppets were excellently received by the schools as part of their overall learning. In edition to this part of my schools work  I  have also instigated, with the help of head of Arts at THE RIDINGS ACADEMY  in Bristol a new arts

day project for 2010/11 , to replace my successful 4 year run of `The Ramayana` project.


Schools work continues to unfold and develop.
