How did you make this work:
For 'Beyond Bloomsbury: Life, Love and Legacy' at York Art Gallery, I was commissioned to bring to life the vibrancy of Bloomsbury’s work through large scale murals, decorative objects and community workshops. Painted over 4 days, the floral centrepiece created a rich backdrop for the exhibition, inspired by the busy, lively and enriching environments in which the group lived and worked.
