Busy Private View for Shape Open 2018

The Shape Open exhibition was opened by Yinka Shonibare on Thursday 22 March at the Arts Pavillion, London. The turn out was huge and the atmosphere buzzing as we appreciated the incredible work selected for this year's show. I'm very proud to say that I am part of such a strong exhibition. The private view was great and I look forward to returning this week to take in the exhibition once more - there was just too much to absorb in one evening! #yinkashonibare #shapeartsopen #shape2018 #artspavillionmileend #privateview #socialjustice #disabilityarts #disability

Pint of Science 2018 has begun!!!

On Thursday last week, a group of scientists and artists got together in a public house to play team games and chat. I am excited to have been paired with another super scientist as part of this years Bristol Pint of Science. I will be working with a clever lady, working within a different scientific field from my scientist last year. I am excited about the opportunity to be inspired and amazed by a scientific world that I have hitherto no experience of! I'll keep you all updated with progress and share with you the steps along the way, all the way up to the exhibition in May. For now, though, here is my most recent piece of work. It is a limited edition, silk screen print, produced as part
