I was asked to join forces with two mega talents Dave Baine and Paul Farrell to create an exhibition based on birds in flight… we all worked hard for this show and the stress to get all my new work done in time was definately worth it! We could all finally relax a little once the show was hung and let the private view commence.
We had a great number of people show their support on the night and a massive thanks must go to Bryony for organising the PR and advertising for this event. The show was held in the Glass Room at the Colston Hall in Bristol, we even decorated the glass with bird decals (thanks to Paul):
