GRAPHIC NOVEL IN PROGRESS 

My academic research considers commemoration, particularly that of my ancestor Duncan Edwards. He was a Busby Babe, Manchester United and England footballer who died after being injured in the 1958 Munich Air Disaster.
I am developing my PhD & new research into a series of zines and a graphic novel. In late 2021 I received an Early Career Research Grant from the British Society of Sports History (BSSH) to help support my research. Follow my blog for updates and shop for my latest zine here

ACTIVISM
I advocate for artist-led, pedal-powered, sustainable regeneration. Being involved in successful campaigns to save art spaces and services I also created and manage the WORKERS GALLERY (est 2014) with my husband - artist Chris Williams MA. The Gallery embodies my belief that being creative and experiencing art can inspire positive cultural and social change. I create political art and cartoons that I share on twitter

WALES AND THE WORLD CUP 2022
I have set myself a challenge to draw a comic, comic strip or cartoon every day from 3 September - with the focus being 'Wales and the World Cup'. I'll draw images inspired by fans, players and staff of the welsh teams- their stories, memories and hopes. I'll tweet my drawings and keep going until they win! Share your stories if you'd like to be featured. (It's just for fun!)
