Fairytales, Myths & Legends Exhibition Launch

I love being a partner at EcoCreate. What a fantastic way to start 2016! We had a wonderful time on Saturday as we gathered to celebrate the launch of our eco and upcycled art exhibition ‘Fairytales, Myths & Legends’.

The exhibition aims to highlight the issues surrounding climate change and showcases the work of fourteen UK artists Learn More

Red Ridinghood - Let's Pretend

My 'Red Ridinghood' from my new 'Let's Pretend' series was included in the exhibition although Charlotte and I excluded ourselves from the awards. Stunning frame by Roaring tree.

During the event the winners of our Gold, Silver and Bronze awards were announced. The awards were made by the talented Keith Lynn of KL Metal art.

The recipients were chosen by our panel of judges Michelle from Remade In Britain, Olivia form Preloved and Jen from Make do and mend-able.

We were thrilled that Michelle and Olivia were able to join us on the night to announce the winners and help present the awards.
