Bucks Art Weeks 2023
I have 2 exhibitions at Bucks Art Week this year - one in my home town of Stony Stratford & one at the Holy Trinity Church in Gawcott. In both venues, I am exhibiting with a group of artists.
Bucks Art Weeks is an annual 2 week event in June, organised by the Visual Images Group. This year, more than 260 artists/artisans will be exhibiting as individuals or as part of a group. I can't wait (especially as I am currently Interim Chair of Visual Images Group & can really see the amount of effort to organise this amazing event).
More details coming soon...

My glass bees at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show
Huge congratulations to Theresa Wedderburn & the team at Branch-out MK CIC who won a Silver medal at the prestigious RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) Chelsea Flower Show for their floral display, 'Just how do bees see'.
The display explores how bees are believed to see the world, in ultraviolet light. I was asked to design & create some bespoke glass bees to be part of her display. If you look closely at the photograph, you will be able to see my bees.
