Sustain(ability) February 2020 Exhibition

On Friday 28th of February 2020, I was lucky enough to have been invited to show my “Fish-Hook” series at the Garden Gallery in Gloucester. The event was put on by Emma Kelly a performing art student from UoG. The evening was filled with performative dance routines and thought-provoking moving images pieces. Then finally into the gallery to look at the art by individuals including myself on the theme of climate change. It was so reaffirming to see so many other artists making work about topics I care about so much and exciting to see the different perspectives the artists took on the same theme. 

Eco Crisis: Art and Science Exhibition 2020

I’m pleased to announce that my ‘Squirrel’ photogram from the ‘Fish Hook’ series will be displayed at the Gerald Moore Gallery from Thursday 13th February 2020- Saturday 14th March 2020. 

This is the second year in a row that Gerald Moore Gallery has focused on an
exhibition celebrating the link between Science and Art. This year’s call out focused
on the Environmental Crisis; being such a prevalent issue in the news and holding
such importance for young people, we decided the shortlisting of artists’ works would
be decided upon by students at Eltham College, aged between 14-18.
The artworks selected focus on the major impacts we face: climate change,
degraded air quality, deforestation, the decrease of animal population, land and sea
pollution, soil erosion and biodiversity losses. As a gallery with learning at its core we
want to give space to raising awareness of these challenges and encourage
everyone to act.

Little Originals Exhibiton December 2019

This December I am taking part in Little Originals – a group exhibition of contemporary art held both online and at Dock Street Studios in Dundee. The exhibition brings together 60 artists from across Europe with the aim of making it easy and affordable to invest in original art. 

All work in the exhibition, including mine, will be available to view at Dock Street Studios, Dundee from 7th until 28th December. The online gallery officially launches on Saturday, but we are inviting friends, family and collectors to view from today. I hope you have time to take a look at my work, which was selected from an open call of over 500 entries

The piece that was selected was from my most recent series is called “Squirrel.” I’d love you to come down and see the exhibition if you can but if not you can view the online exhibition here.
