Exhibitions


PROSEED Summer 2020

 

Due to the life-altering events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant collapse of national art selling exhibitions, I wanted to find a way to safely exhibit artworks once more in the real world.

 

As lockdown measures began to be relaxed, an opportunity to open a pop-up shop on one of Carlisle's major trunk roads appeared and after a careful risk assessment I decided to invite other Cumbrian artists to partake in a new exhibition initiative. So far, the response has been overwhelmingly positive and just the attitude we all need in these challenging times. 

 


Upfront Cumbrian Art Open 2020

 

I feel privileged to have had three pieces accepted for this prestigious open competition and am delighted to have won a special Gallery Prize for this installation, 'Dust to Dust'. The piece was created from recycled decorating dust sheets with household paint, wood offcuts, charcoal and found objects.
