I have completed just under fifty tiles and murals for the new children’s unit at the New Cross Hospital. I’m looking forward to seeing the artwork displayed at the launch in November. This is one of the dolphin tile designs.
Our first site visit to the new children’s unit at the Royal Wolverhampton Hospital. All dressed up in builders caps, fluorescent overalls, steel capped wellies, gloves and glasses! We had a tour to visualise where the art panels and ceiling tiles will be displayed.
I have a busy Summer working on 39 pieces of artwork for the new children’s unit at Wolverhampton NHS Trust.
12 September to 21 November, 2015
We encounter illustrations every day, be they instructions, cartoons or anatomical diagrams. Illustration Beats Explanation features contemporary artists who work in illustration and use comics, storyboards and drawing as a visual way to convey new ideas about the world. The exhibition is a collaboration between Nathaniel Pitt, Division of Labour Gallery and the Museums Worcestershire Team.
I have been invited to exhibit illustrations for this event.
I have spent the last five weeks working with ladies from Ladywood, creating miniature 3D coffins and writing eulogy’s. The exhibition is on display at the Coffin Works in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham.
I will be working with families at The Elgar Birthplace Museum and Visitor Centre on Wednesday 28th October. We will crack the code and create amazing cryptic art inspired by Elgar.

I have just heard the fabulous news that I will be working on an art commission based on “My World” for a new Paediatric Arts in Health unit for The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust. It will involve creating twelve large wall panels and tiles based on nature.
I have been commissioned by Wychavon District Council to work with residents in care homes, to make memory books. We will be creating paintings and memory books celebrating people’s lives. This will involve learning new art techniques, reminiscing and eating cake.
I am very excited to be working on a celebration of life and death project, at the Coffin Works in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. It will be a five week project working with women from all cultures and faiths, commencing in May. We will be creating miniature coffins taking inspiration from the fabulous Ghanaian coffins, which will be exhibited at the venue from July to September 2015.
