As part of the Year of Homecoming 2009, in partnership with Culture Sport Glasgow, artruist organised "Inspired", a major exhibition celebrating the life and work of Robert Burns. "Inspired" was on display in the Old Reading Hall at The Mitchell Library, Glasgow. The exhibition featured around 50 contemporary works of art inspired by Burnss life and works alongside a small selection of Burns related relics. Also, a limited edition print was created, incorporating the Inspired design, and there are still some available the Inspired Burns edition. See also our Press coverage.
