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 reportage project pays tribute to the archive of Henry Tonks' First
World War pastel portraits which recorded the facial reconstruction of
wounded soldiers by pioneering surgeon Harold Gillies. "War Art & Surgery"
is a World War 1 centenary project.
Over 150 drawings have been produced representing military surgeons in training and recently wounded soldiers on their road to recovery
drawings look at the training and expertise of clinicians and the
heroism of those who survived life-changing injuries, a century ago and
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, will take place at The Hunterian
Museum, Royal College of Surgeons of England, London, from 14th October 2014.
