Shanties & Other Stories , Herbert Read Gallery, UCA Canterbury   ‘The thematic yarn that was cast through the work held it together like a fisherman's net. So the starkly different aesthetics from maritime traditions and pop worked well in the salon style hang. Your eye was drawn from left to right, as if on shore looking to the horizon for the first glimpse of a returning fleet. A little romanticism overlaid with urban street art and a flash of a tattooed man. What was there not to draw you in?’  Rod McIntosh, Artist and Writer
