BBC 1 ‘Home is Where the Art is’

I was thrilled to appear in an episode of the

BBC art show

‘Home is Where the Art is’

I was one of three artists competing to win a commission for the home of an art buyer. Unfortunately this episode is no longer on iPlayer.

But you can see the images below of ‘Stargaze Spiral’ the piece I made during the course of the BBC show

There was also an article about me and my work and the TV programme in the Yorkshire Post, Wednesday July 1st 2020
