I am an artist swimmer.

In July 2016 I completed a solo swim across the English Channel, covering a distance of 48km.

This blog is made up of personal notes relating to my training,  preparation and  the swim itself.

The swim was documented by artist John Hartley and my coach Tim Denyer.

John and I are currently editing the material with a view to creating a multi-screen video installation for exhibition in galleries and festivals.
