♦ I am currently co- curating the Leaves of the Tree exhibition at Winchester Cathedral: A diverse exhibition of work by Winchester Cathedral Scribes and invited artists highlighting many of the beloved plants growing around the Cathedral, as well as botanical imagery inspired by the Bible, with a special display on the culinary and medicinal relevance of plants in a monastic garden. This eclectic group of artists have produced a fascinating selection of work in a range of styles, from traditional botanical illustration to formal calligraphy to mixed media. Given the ecclesiastical connection between Cathedrals and plant imagery, this exhibition will certainly be appreciated on many levels.
