Drawing, Printmaking, Documentary drawing.

I am a printmaker / artist who specialises in drawing.  Reportage and Documentary Drawing projects occupy much of my time. 

My current project project pays tribute to the archive of Henry Tonks' First World War pastel portraits depicting the facial reconstruction of wounded soldiers by pioneering surgeon Harold Gillies.

 "War Art & Surgery" is a World War 1 centenary project which documents the preparation of military medical personnel pre deployment and the rehabilitation of servicemen and women following their surgery.
Drawings from the the portfolio are currently on display at the
Durham Light Infantry Museum and Art Gallery, Durham until 21st September.

The exhibition and launch of the accompanying book,
"War, Art and Surgery: Rehabilitation and Reconstruction in the work of Henry Tonks and Julia Midgley" edited by Samuel J.M.M. Alberti, takes place in London at The Hunterian Museum, Royal College of Surgeons of England, from 14th October 2014.
