I am researching a new project, WETlands, about fragile wetland habitats and the potential effects of climate change on them. I have received a Time and Space Residency with UK arts organisation, METAL in Chalkwell (Southend on Sea) for research in the Thames Estuary in May 2018. As part of my activity during the residency, I will explore the 29 mile Thames Estuary Path from Tilbury to Leigh-on-Sea, using drawing, video and photography to document my walks.
I also have received generous donations of drawing materials from Global Art Supplies and from Great Art, both of whom previously supported my Tide Line Thames project.
I am looking forward to my stay in Chalkwell House, the Grade II listed Georgian building that is home to METAL in Southend. Built in 1830, it sits within Chalkwell Park with views across the Park and beyond to the Thames Estuary to Kent.
