Artist in Residence – Thornbury Mayor. 2016/17
This residency is a first for Thornbury and was initiated by Helen Harrison, Town Mayor when she approached me to be her artist in Residence. Together we will explore what it is like to be part of the community of Thornbury.
Throughout the year I will be working with various groups in Thornbury to discover what it feels like to be in their group and their place within the community.
We will put on an exhibition of the work created at the end of Helen’s year as Mayor. This exhibition will raise funds for Helen’s chosen charity – Jigsaw, a local group that supports families with children and young people with additional needs.
