For those who missed it, here is the podcast link for the radio show to which I got invited to chat about my art, what inspires me and my upcoming solo art exhibition.
Without a further ado, I would like to invite to my solo art exhibition opening night on Friday 19th November 7pm at Weston Museum, Burlington Street, Weston-super-Mare, Somerset BS23 1PR.This will be an evening to remember set in a historic and distinctive building, with my art, interesting guests, good music, drinks and food. For more information and updates of the event please follow Facebook event page here. You can visit my art exhibition until 1st of December 2021. Museum opening times: Tuesday to Saturday 10 am - 4 pm. Hope to see you there!
