Exciting news…..I’ve set a date for my solo exhibition at Free Space Gallery as 6th February 2015.
The day will start with a Vintage inspired Tea Party between 3.30 – 5pm followed by the evening Private view at 6.30-9pm and the exhibition will continue until 3/4/2015.
I’ll be holding a third free workshop at Free Space Gallery tomorrow (4th November 2014), 11- 3 pm please come along and help colour in my Interactive Wallpaper….The workshop is completely free and the project is to raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer Care & Beating Bowel Cancer through Art……I’m also told by participants that the workshops are hugely therapeutic!
So the last twelve months I’ve been updating lots on my Interactive Wallpaper Project, in which I’ve hand Illustrated a roll of wallpaper, taking it around London Galleries and Spaces including: Debut Contemporary, CGP Gallery and Free Space Gallery asking members of the public to colour in or paint the characters.
I’ve now set up a Just Giving Page in which people can name a character in honour a loved one or indeed themselves as a lasting tribute to everyone whose fought Cancer. In return for the donation I will name a character of you choice after that person, or for a donation of fifteen pounds I will Illustrate that person onto the wallpaper by hand.
The two completed rolls of wallpaper will be exhibited at a solo show at Free Space Gallery in February 2015.
I lost my dear Stepfather Tim to Bowel Cancer in 2009 and now want to put my creative energy into a project to help others and to honour Tim.

As a child with my Mum and Tim
Friday was my last ‘Stress Busting Colouring workshop’ at CGP Gallery, In which I have run six workshops altogether (one every Friday during the school Summer holiday period).
I created a new roll of Interactive Wallpaper for these workshops in which families have been dropping into the gallery to add their mark to……..What a wonderful few weeks it has been! the development has been mapped onto the wallpaper as it’s grown, becoming brighter, flamboyant and even chaotic in places….I LOVE IT!
Please keep an eye out as I have been discussing some exciting fundraising plans with the people at Beating Bowel Cancer this wallpaper is just the start.
I’d also like to say a huge Thank you to all of the adults and children who came along and contributed to the wallpaper, you really have brought it to life!
The ‘Stress Busting Colouring’ workshops at CGP Gallery (every Friday of Summer 11-4 pm) are going fantastically, often with the same participants coming back weekly…and the wallpaper is looking AMAZING….i love how every adult and child add something completely new to this Artwork:
I’m also going to be holding a workshop with the painted wallpaper at Free Space Gallery (Kentish Town Health Centre) on Thursday 21st August 2014 (6-9 pm) to raise awareness & funds for Breast Cancer Care & Beating Bowel Cancer:
please come along and get involved…it’s for a great cause and as I’m always told ‘hugely therapeutic’:
I have some exciting Art Fundraisers in the pipeline: I’ve been working on a second roll of ‘Interactive wallpaper’ which I will be exhibiting at Free Space Gallery (along with the original) in February 2015.
On Saturday 28th I will be at the Bermondsey Carnival with my new wallpaper roll (Stall S14) – the lovely people at CPG Gallery have kindly offered to share their stand with me: Come along and add to a unique Artwork which will eventually be sold in aid of Beating Bowel Cancer & Breast Cancer Care.
