I have never really had that much love of fungi apart from loving to eat them. Then during the Masters in Arts and Ecology at Dartington college of art I met and worked with Dr. Christian Taylor, a mycologist and experienced leader of fungal forays, and together with my kids discovered a real admiration for these strange beings, to the extent that I’d like to start a fan club.

I am know working on a new project entitled ‘The United Kingdom of Fungi’ which is a visual aesthetic response to the fungi’s extraordinary powers – soil remediation, high nutritional values, their own kingdom (they’re not plants or animals). Watch this space if you’re interested in their mysterious powers.
