Thank you

Since it’s the last day of the year, I am writing a quick post to say thank you to everyone who reads, follows and comments on my Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram and website. I’ve had a tremendous year with lots of exciting opportunities and it’s always so nice to get some feedback. It makes all the hard work worthwhile.

In 2014 I started working collaboratively with a theatre company called TAFAT. This began with one of my paintings incorporated into their company logo. They also commissioned my first ever public art installation called ‘The Futility of War’. This was to accompany the performance of ‘One Day’ –  a commemorative production based on the Scarborough bombardment of 1914 and the war poems of Wilfred Owen.

Who's who in Art 36th Edition

Early in the year I was completely over the moon to be shortlisted for the Photogram Open Award. This was a great achievement for me along with a listing in the publication of Who’s Who in Art.

One of my highlights was exhibiting again at the Daniel Libeskind Space with Guerrilla Galleries for ‘Urban Life’ . You can see a short video of the exhibition here

I shall be kick starting 2015 with another exciting exhibition with Guerrilla Galleries called ‘Forbidden’ from 6th – 8th January.

I am currently working on a new piece to be shown during Coastival, Scarborough’s very own art’s and culture festival. Shall be telling more about that very soon.

Happy New Year everyone!
