“What Tall Daisies” Spring Fling Taster

As particapant in this years Spring Fling I have created a peice of art work for the up and coming Taster Exhibition! Starting at Gracefield Dumfries Fri 29 – Sun 31 March 2013
Opening hours:
10am – 5pm Sun 10am – 4pm

This exhibition will be touring Dumfries and Galloway until the end of the month. This exhibition will be a glimpses of the creativity bubbling up for Spring Fling in May.

I have produced a example of the artwork I will be exhibiting called “Daisy” This is an Hand Silk Screen Print 60 x 60cm  with multi coloured galloway skies and wilded florals – all contextualised by a classic Kirkcudbright Townscape. This piece of work is playful with scale and growth which I believe reflects the freedom in our landscape. ❤
