Llandough Hospital Hearth Gallery Opening

believe plaqueAfter a whole HOUR stuck in traffic, we finally made it to the opening, just as all the pomp, ceremony, presentations and photo’s were over. Not to worry, we had the gallery to ourselves to see some fantastic work. Back in the hot days of June, I painted the ‘Believe Tree’ in a courtyard just off the gallery, and they even put a plaque up with my name on! – I’m truly humbled.

I look forward to visiting Llandough Hospital again when the new Mental Health Unit is up and running, with artwork throughout. It’s so refreshing to have art highly valued in a place which can be depressing, sad and stressful.

 

 

Grow Wild ‘Discover the Diff’

I was contacted by a lovely chap called Phil, from RSPB, who asked if I’d be interested in painting a mural based around nature on the Millenium Boardwalk. The Millenium Boardwalk! Well yes I said, and I did. I had lots of people stop and chat, and say how nice it is to see some positivity going onto our walls. A lovely lady sent a picture to the South Wales Echo (they published it), I met a friendly American on a tour of the UK who guarded my belongings while I ‘paid a visit’, a group of enthusiastic local children, some local graffers, and numerous smiles, nods and kind comments … Anyway, it’s all to generate interest in this project called ‘Discover The Diff’, which, if funding is secured, will mean that the boardwalk will be planted, painted and loved. I’d be mighty grateful if you can click this link and vote for the project as there are three, all out to public vote, and money only goes to the winner: http://votewales.growwilduk.com/#site/discoverthediff

Also, here’s a condensed version of a piece of writing I did with my husband Owen Thomas, about nature and art, also on the boardwalk:
