Exhibition – Sheffield 13th – 15th June.

I’m delighted that in just a week from now I’ll be exhibiting my latest work at The Workstation in Sheffield, S1 2BX.

My exhibited work is the culmination of 2 years experimenting, developing techniques, and evolving my art practice. I have designed fabrics, printed them and developed products, I then brought them together in a catalogue and began to market them online and seek retail opportunities. The products are designed to provide ‘everyday inspiration’ as part of my aim to inspire and uplift people.

My art journey started a little over two years ago when following acute knee injury and surgery there weren’t many things I could do. One thing I was able to do was art, I decided to indulge and focus on art.

Then faced with a winter of not being able to do the sports I loved, skiing and skating, I enrolled at the local college. Returning to education as a mature student is challenging and growing accustomed to asking for help and being beyond my comfort zone took some getting used to. But after a great year at Sheffield College and a Distinction in the course I was sad to leave. I felt I had more exploring to do, through the college learning and development structure, and in the great facilities of the Design & Visual Arts Department at the Hillsborough Campus. So I returned to study an Art Foundation course with the intention of giving myself a baseline offering for a successful art business of commissioned work, illustration projects, products and licensing.

With hard work, dedication and enthusiastic support I have achieved what I set out to do, and am pleased to have this opportunity to publicly show my work.

Sheffield College’s Design and Visual Arts Exhibition is at The Workstation, Paternoster Row, Sheffield from Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th June to 10am – 4pm and 15th June 10am – 8pm. The exhibition embraces the disciplines of Art and Design, Games Design, Graphic Design and Photography.
