In 2013-14 I had the great pleasure of working with internationally acclaimed artist Hamish Fulton who marked 40 years as a 'walking artist' with a spectacular return to Penzance. On 19th and 20th October over 300 walkers gathered in Penzance to create two new art works by Hamish Fulton, to mark the 40th anniversary of his commitment to the act of walking.

The Sheffield Project.
These images were made in Sheffield between 1988-90, The Lower Don Valley was at that time an immense abandoned area of industrial history. The valley was mapped for change and ‘regeneration’ with retail and new sports facilities to house the World Student Games, but the lower Don Valley had been used for heavy industry for hundreds of years, and was renowned as the city producing steel and cutlery.
