In the summer of 2017 I received an MA in Illustration (distinction) from the Arts University of Bournemouth. As part of the MA we had to present our work in a graduation show.
DORSET WILDLIFE TRUST
SUMMER 2018 - BROWNSEA ISLAND
This exhibition showing a combination of works - both from sketchbooks and finished pieces - that reflect what can be seen and heard from the various bird hides that are dotted around the Dorset Wildlife Trust nature reserve on Brownsea island.
The exhibition also featured works made in and inspired by the Dorset coastline and the various hideaways that I enjoy across the county.
ART FUNDRAISER FOR LEGENDEER
SUMMER 2018 - DENVER USA
Legendeer is dedicated to embedding artists back into the world. They design tools and programs to facilitate creative pioneers in pursuit of authenticity and cultural impact across a broad range of mediums.
In the spring of 2017 I travelled to Zion National Park in Utah to join the Legendeer programme for a week.
During the programme, participants of Legendeer Zion sat for Portrait sessions. Photographer and artist Mahting Putelis explored our growth as artists and delved into conversations surrounding community, creation, empowerment, humility, and more.
This series of Portraits was exhibited in Denver, CO. in November 2017, along with original art created by the artists. The art created was sold at silent auction as contribution to the 2019 Legendeer Scholarship Fund. I am pleased to say that I sent two pieces which were both sold on the night of the preview to an American collector.
