I am very excited to announce that I will be exhibiting my set of Cock Robin paintings in Castle Gates Library in Shrewsbury from Monday 9th September! The paintings will be on display there until 19th October, along with a first edition copy of my book 'The Death of Cock Robin'.
The exhibition will then be followed by an event on Thursday 24th October at University Centre Shrewsbury which will feature a performance by myself, as I present my own interpretation of the rhyme; its histories, mysteries and meaning. This will be a new one-off performance that will provide a unique insight into the folklore, symbolism and emotional resonances that I untangled as I worked on the book.
The exhibition and event have been organised in collaboration with Mythstories Museum of Myth and Fable, now based at University Centre Shrewsbury. As the culmination of two years of work and a Fine Art Masters degree at Aberystwyth University, I am overjoyed to be able to show the paintings and share the book here in my home country of Shropshire, in a building dedicated to stories, and with the aid of such wonderful local storytellers!

The performance at the University is free to attend but you will still need to book a ticket as space is limited, you can do so on Eventbrite here.
