These artworks were exhibited as a solo show at Kendal Museum. They are structured and inspired by a 12 km / 7.5 mile swim that I completed of the Length of Lake Ullswater in Cumbria, where I grew up.

The END of Lake Ullswater

Ever since I was young I have been swimming in its waters and I always wondered if It would be possible to swim it from end to end. With an artist bursary award from VARC (Visual Arts in Rural Communities) I completed this ambition, and created a series of Artworks that described the experience.

I wanted to remap the landscape from a new perspective. Many of the canvases were submerged in the lake first. Once dried I then worked on top of the marks and stains left by the water.
