I have just returned from London, after having the most amazing time. I was chosen to create 2 pieces of art, along with 8 other artists, on the major points in the countries history, since the introduction of Magna Carta, 750 years ago. The 2 themes I was given were the 1834 Tolpuddle Martyrs and the 1995 Disability Discrimination Act. 

 

You can watch interviews with me here about each of the banners:

It was a real honour to be involved in such a prestigious and momentous project & I loved meeting the other artists involved. It was like being chosen to play for the best school football team, being part of that talented group of people.




It was not an easy project as I had to work towards a strict brief, but nevertheless, the results were awe inspiring. I am very proud of my 2 banners and even prouder that the children I work with in schools will be visiting Parliament throughout 2015 to see these amazing pieces of art, in a world famous setting.


 

I was also interviewed by SBC Australian TV and was also featured on BBC East Yorkshire & Lincolnshire, along with the Morning Star.
