Suspended Collaboration Exhibition Blurb

3 June 2021

Artist in Residence at Oriel y Parc, St Davids

12 May 2021

Looking forward this week to hanging my first joint exhibition with my talented other half Ian McDonald at Oriel y Parc gallery in St Davids. It’s a large-scale installation and a collaborative effort between us – and everyone who has spent time in Pembrokeshire. If you have any fond memories of special times or places in Pembrokeshire, let me know and they could be immortalised on one of the 84 porcelain panels that we are in the process of creating.

After hanging another 20 panels on Saturday, I’ve realised that the installation at Oriel y Parc is completely impossible to photograph as they never stop moving in the gentle West Wales breeze!
