I have been very remiss with blogging - too many balls to juggle! Recently I took a short 2-day break to Yorkshire to visit the Sculpture Park, an astounding place, and walked across the moors to the house that inspired Wuthering Heights, one of my favourite books.
As summer blasts upon us (hooray!) I have a flurry of work and exhibitions coming up from tomorrow. I hope you will be able to visit some of them:
I am still working on a large Cocoon piece for Fresh Air ’17 (see below), due to be installed in a week and still some way to go before completion! Quenington Old Rectory, Quenington, Cirencester, Gloucestershire GL7 5BN, 11 June – 2 July, open daily 10am-5pm, (£5 Adults, children free).
In between making this I have been working towards an imminent MFA module at Bath Spa Uni, to be assessed next week. Clashing deadlines, late nights, but nearly ready!
I’ve made a Nests piece for Fifty BEES: The Interconnectedness of All Things, at ACEarts, Somerton, 1-22 July, open Tues – Sat, 10am-5pm. A lovely project with great ambitions.
I am also taking part in the following:
