Skills, Smells and Spells: Press

During the build up to the exhibition I made contact with some wonderful, passionate people: Peers, bloggers, journalists and writers. They all helped spread the word about my show and work, either with articles in magazines, on websites, blogs or indeed by kindly allowing me to write on their sites as a guest blogger.

Below is a list of some of the press and interest surrounding the exhibition.

A massive thank you to everyone…


Amateur Photographer ran a wonderful four page spread, written by Gemma Padley. View the PDF here.


An interview with Willemijn Barker-Benfield for her film, art and music review site, ‘Hands full of hope and fists full of fear’.

Thanks to Gem Barton & Carly Jayne of Magic + Mafia (formerly Collate Presents) for inviting me to write a piece on their Doo Dah Blog.
