ART COUNCIL OF ENGLAND application for Emergency Funding was successful! Thank you so much!
I can now put ideas into practice, which will involve lots of exploration and skills learning to sustain my practice during these times.
REVIEW OF CORE SAMPLE PROJECT & EXHIBITION – March 2019
Diana Clements has written a report on the Core Sample Project and Exhibition in the March 2019 issue to the ‘Magazine of The Geologists’ Association’ and I am also really pleased that one of my works is on the magazine cover.

TIDEWAY – CHAMBERS WHARF SITE weekly update on 15-3-19
The fossilised tooth in the above image was found in excavated material from the shaft at Chambers Wharf. A local artist, Gail Dickerson, has been using excavated material of different soil types. She found the tooth in one of the sample bags of spoil which came from approximately 13 metres deep within the shaft. Archaeologists from the Museum of London (MoLA) believe it to be a fossilised shark tooth, most likely from the Eocene, London Clay geological deposit and around 55 million years old. MoLA said “it looks a lot like ‘Anomotodon novus’ an extinct shark but a relative of the modern day deep sea dwelling goblin shark, which is around 3 metres long and extends its jaws when feeding”.
