'Be Extraordinary' by Ruth Gildersleve

About the artwork

This piece is about being extraordinary in the world and everyone is different and special – so ‘be you’ and be extraordinary, whoever you are. I have used scrap paper and fabric leaves I have collected to reuse. The bees are made out of acetate from old gift boxes and drinks cans, stamped on to represent the need to do our bit and make a difference.
