So after 27 long months of studying with The Society of Botanical Artists and passing with credit...Graduation day arrived, a lovely evening was spent on the 20th of April with fellow graduates and family members!
I'm now busy planning my first exhibition in August with a fellow artist, Samantha Ann Hutchinson.The opening night is planned for the 3rd of August at the Dugdale Centre in Enfield Town, Middlesex and our artworks are going to be exhibited for a period of 3 weeks! This is all very exciting and I have many more projects planned for the future; so watch this space :)
