Skills, Smells and Spells: Press

During the build up to the exhibition I made contact with some wonderful, passionate people: Peers, bloggers, journalists and writers. They all helped spread the word about my show and work, either with articles in magazines, on websites, blogs or indeed by kindly allowing me to write on their sites as a guest blogger.

Below is a list of some of the press and interest surrounding the exhibition.

A massive thank you to everyone…
