As well as this blog, I also have a website with lots more images of my work as well as a few more stories.

Work on display at Triodos bank's UK headquarters and in 'Cornucopia' at the Grant Bradley Gallery

Last week I was invited to a couple of openings to do with art events that I've been involved in.

On Thursday, I visited Triodos bank's headquarters in Bristol, to see the completion of the 'Cornerstone' project that I've contributed to. We were shown around part of the building, which uses a lot of recycled materials and has a nice atmosphere to it - it's an interesting and well designed space. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming too. Triodos specialise in ethically sound banking, so don't invest in ethically questionable companies. You can see more about the project here;

Then on Friday, it was the busy private view for the 'Cornucopia' exhibition at the Grant Bradley gallery in Bristol.


I was really impressed by a lot of the other work on show- most of it was of a very high standard. There are thirty people exhibiting and all go to one or other of the life drawing groups organised by Will Stevens in Bristol. Quite a few are professional artists or are closely involved in the art world in Bristol in some way.

There's more info on the show in this post;
