Just taken this work as well as my 'Seasons' series to Staacks Gallery in West Kirby where it will be shown throughout June. Its a great gallery space with lots of natural light where you can also get wonderful hand made cakes in their café. The owners are lovely and I can guarantee a warm welcome.
'Bounce' second in my 'Out of the Box' series off to the framers ready for 'All Squared' exhibition at Willow Gallery in Oswestry in July
I've been busy working on a new project, something a little bit different from my previous pieces and a bit of an experiment. This work if for an exhibition called Cabinet of Curiosities at The Chapel Gallery in Ormskirk ( dates to be confirmed). I will be exhibiting with 'Re-View' which is a group of talented textile artists that push the boundaries of textiles and its classification of craft.
It was my intention to produce a three-dimensional piece of work, contained within a glass domed cloche. Inside will be a world full of ‘micro-blooms’, influenced by botanical illustrations of the late nineteenth century and inspired by the Victorian fascination of decorative arts and the preservation and presentation of nature under glass domes.
