ELEMENTAL, Jean Bishop Integrated Care Centre

  Artworks commissioned for the Jean Bishop Integrated Care Centre, Hull, 2019 The uplifting effects of nature and its positive influence on our health was the overarching theme for the series of artworks commissioned for the Jean Bishop Integrated Care Centre, Hull.

This is an amazing new development for me at such an early stage in my architectural glass career, and I feel immensely privileged.
