Canopy: Manchester

 

After attending a tree drawing workshop last year at the Whitworth Gallery, I was given the opportunity to take part in a funded project to curate and produce content for an exhibition, working alongside the Tree Charter, in association with the Woodland Trust and Lyrix Organix. I have been illustrating scenes from the parks around Manchester, focusing primarily on areas that showcase the contrast of trees in their natural surroundings with the urban environment in which they inhabit, and celebrating them in relation of how one complements another.

 

In completion of this project, I displayed my work at Manchester Museums Fascination of Plants Day. I exhibited a selection of illustrations produced and ran a workshop.
