Yesterday was the Private View of the Annual Open at CGP Gallery…..It was absolutely buzzing, beautifully curated with some fantastic pieces on display!
Here are two of the Artworks I submitted:
Acrylic & Ink on Canvas
‘What’s This ?’
Acrylic & Ink on Canvas
Both Artworks are inspired from my new piece ‘The Tree Of Life & Growth’, I made them especially for the exhibition, as were approaching Christmas I wanted to create some affordable, accessible little originals.
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’:
