A new exhibition space opened in January in Maidstone, called 'The Walkway'. It is a 30 metre long space in Maidstone House, King Street, Maidstone. Danny was selected as the inaugural artist by Maidstone Arts Development team to show in this space. The theme of the exhibition is 'Childhood and Memories', and brings together for the first time many of the paintings that can be seen on the 'Childhood' page of this site

The Studio was recently (March 13th 2008) involved in the launch of Crea+ive Maids+one, a billboard project in the heart of the proposed Artists Quarter in Maidstone. Photographer Manuel Palomeque was commissioned by Art at the Centre to take pictures of 30 'creatives, in the widest sense of the term, who either live or work in Maidstone; Danny was one of them.
As well as Manuel taking portraits, Mark Hewitt, editor of the Artists Quarter Quarterly, was commissioned to interview each 'creative' involved in the project. All the portraits and interviews will be featured in a publication called Creative Maidstone, which will mark the billboard project and celebrate all the varied talent and creativity that goes on in Maidstone.
