Yorkshire Sculpture Park



Yesterday my flock of 44 birds finally made their way to Yorkshire Sculpture Park! They can now be seen winging their way across the shop window and are, from the tiniest Long-tailed Tit to the most enormous Pelican, available to buy. I'm also selling some paper and wire 3D illustrations, bird brooches and decorations, cards and prints. 


I haven't yet got any photographs to show you, but there will be plenty on their way soon! It took over five hours to hang all the birds, and I was wonderfully and most ably assisted by my mum and sister. I absolutely could not have done it without them as they spent the entire day tying on fishing wire and holding the birds in place while I teetered atop a ladder with a staple gun. (Anyone who is aware of my utter lack of balance and all round clumsiness should have seen me making a desperate lunge to a far corner with the stapler, while Felicity held on to my ankles for her dear life, and mine.)
For now, here is one of the illustrations available to buy from tomorrow. YSP is in such a beautiful part of the country and is really easy to get to (just off the M1), so if you fancy a summer jaunt to a glorious, enormous park of sculptures, YSP is the place for you!

I wish I was a bit closer, it would be great to see all your work in real life! I will recommend it to my friends 'up north' though!

I think it's up until the 5th September, possibly slightly later.
