Folk House Exhibition

Thank you to all those that attended my opening 'Afternoon Tea Affair' last Saturday at the Folk House in Bristol. The lovely staff in the cafe had made the most wonderful chocolate cake, it as so shiny I didn't want to cut into it, actually, it didn't take that much persuasion!
My work will be up until the beginning of next month so pop along and enjoy.
