Installation view at The Riverfront with Dan Turner's Tan (Place) floor piece 
Please note: Many of the events I have listed here have been cancelled in light of the Covus 19 crisis. Things are changing constantly. We are all working in unknown territory and the uncertainty is challenging. I will update any news on rescheduling as soon as I can

I am excited to be creating specially commissioned artworks Places, Spaces, Traces for The Romani Cultural & Arts Company for their groundbreaking Gypsy Maker project—an initiative that supports the development of innovative works by established and emerging Gypsy, Roma and Traveller artists. The exhibition  also feature the work of Dan Turner and is supported by Arts Council Wales will tour to three venues:

The Factory, Jenkin Street, Porth, 27 April-22 May.  Visit the virtual exhibition here.  until 19 June.

For those unable to see the tour in Wales some of the pieces will be shown at the Festival of Quilts  in 2021 as part of the exhibition 'Found' with Art Textiles Made in Britain  

The internet gives us access to all the art we could possibly want to see. But it cannot replace the visceral experience of coming face to face with an artwork. That suckerpunch of being hit by a painting just can’t happen via a computer or phone screen. Every submission I opened on my email led to an exclamation of ‘oh wow!’ but I know that seeing these pieces in real life would be an immeasurably more intense experience.
