Great to revisit Stonehaven Open Air Pool today, built in the 1930s, one of the two remaining outdoor heated saltwater pools in Scotland. A refreshing swim in 14° weather 💦🐡

Looking forward to the launch of This House for Building, which opens tonight @thetetley in their Bar and Kitchen 6-8pm. We are having an In Conversation between 6-7pm with myself where I will talk about the project and research and talk with Sharon Bainbridge about working with archives, industry and textiles.
Pictured is 'Almost...a hundred more years of progress', 2017. Screen print digitally printed onto silk, 60cm x 60cm. Edition of 30.

The Greystone Hotel is currently closed on Miami South Beach for refurbishment, but I managed to view an original postcard of the hotel during one of my visits to the Wolfsonian Museum archive. -

Delighted to find out I have received a Grants for the Arts Award from @aceagrams for my project 'This House for Building|This Building for Hope' this year, where I will be working with partners including The Tetley, Leeds, and The Midland Morecambe, both 1930s listed buildings. More information to follow! Image: Aircraft, 1938, designed by Marion Dorn for Orcades Ocean Liner, who designed interior furnishings for The Midland, Morecambe.

Sorry to see The Carron Restaurant in Stonehaven is currently closed. I hope someone takes the beautiful building over soon and brings it back to life!

We have made our second modernist tour in Sofia.  This time we visited the edifice built for Theodora and Stefan Peikovi designed by arch. Vasko Vassilev in 1939 and completed in 1942. On the roof there is a swimming pool - a part of the original project of the building! Now this site functions as a gallery "Swimming Pool" @swimmingpoolprojects

Wonderful to finally visit @delawarr after so many years of looking at images in books and online. It is a lot larger than I thought, and has a great feeling of the outside being on the inside due to the large windows. It felt a lot more machine like in its design than other Seaside Moderne architecture I have viewed perhaps due to the heavy use of metal. I also loved the Roy Voss sculpture against the backdrop of the Channel. 💦🏊🌊

Feeling proud I managed to cycle to Urmston 💪 and back today via the magnificient Longford cinema, designed in 1936 by Henry Elder, apparently the first building in the UK to have neon lighting. It looks pretty locked up- does anyone know if it is in use? Might be of interest @samnightingale_99

When I was in Miami I got into drawing on paper outside with watercolour, something I haven't ever really done before, but I needed a quick way to draw, and I really like the immediacy of it. Pictured is a drawing of one of the central facade motifs of one of the many 1930s hotels on Miami South Beach.

Had a long interesting day in Morecambe. Exciting planning meeting with The Midland and then I met with 3 Morecambe based artists for mentoring sessions. Kate Drummond and @Johnkingston_backwater both work studios located across their beautiful, eclectic three story house. Photographer Irene Switala is based from her home studio behind her husbands infamous Pier Bookshop on the promenade. It was also lovely to see the new mural by @bespokeatelier in the former Super Swimming Stadium commissioned by @decopublique

Amazing tour of Miami Art Deco district this morning by Miami Design Preservation League guide, Maureen, and a visit to their fascinating Art Deco museum. Visited lobbies and rooftops, and so much history of the social situations and people that brought art deco to Miami, and those that preserved it in the 1980s.

A fascinating morning looking at items related to The Tetley history @TheBrotherton library in Leeds. Such a stunning 1930s building- so lovely to revisit after many years.

So delighted to to find out I have been awarded an Artists International Development Grant from the Arts Council and British Council, to undertake a research and development project Miami Moderne in 2017. I will be visiting Miami in Spring 2017, to exhibit new work, research into the large area of modernist seafront architecture in the South Beach and meet with a variety of curators from the BASS Museum of Contemporary Art, Locust Projects, Girls Club and Primary. Can't wait! Pictured: The McAlpin Hotel, Miami South Beach, 1939.

Looking for a last minute Christmas present? I still have a few copies available of the Limited edition print 'The Sea Breeze was the Cure' available on my online shop.

Giclee print on matt etching paper, A3 (42cm x 29cm), they are from a limited edition of 50.

The print was made in response to research into the Rothesay Pavilion on the West Coast of Scotland, built in 1938. The title comes from a passage in the novel Sandition, by Jane Austen, where she writes about how theseaside can cure any known health ailment. Link to online shop in Instagram bio.

Starting the week off with a shot of one of my favourite buildings. The cantilevered stairwell at The Midland Hotel in Morecambe, designed in 1933 by architect Oliver Hill. With a medallion mural at the top of this stairwell by the controversial Eric Gill, the stairway has been called the 'stairway to heaven'.

One of my drawings for a new work 'A Sun Curtain for Arthur Towle', which will be included in a solo project at In Certain Places, Preston. The work draws from various stairwells in The Midland Hotel Morecambe. Arthur Towle was London Midland Scottish Railway companies Controller, who was responsible for commissioning the modernist hotel and overseeing all costs, design and works, including signing off the sun curtains to protect the interiors from the coastal sun.

Oh to be relaxing in this amazing space right now.... The original cocktail lounge at The Midland Hotel, Morecambe in 1933, when it opened, designed by architect Oliver Hill, who closely over saw all of the interiors and furnishings.

I am really pleased to have one of my photographs of Rothesay Pavilion included in their Photography Exhibition, as part of their Closing Weekend celebrations, before their redevelopment begins.  The competition is to be judged by the legendary Martin Parr - exciting!  The photograph above is of the opening stairwell, in the bottom left corner you can see their terrazzo floor, a common method for coloured and patterned floors in public buildings in the 1930s. @rothesaypavilion
