Happy New Year!

It feels like an exciting year, 2020. A new decade with new beginnings and possibilities.

2019 was personally a tough one so I am happy to move forward. Not least because I had to say good bye to my artist studio at ArtistsWorkhouse as it closed on 30th November. Sorry to put my studio contents into storage while I look for a new studio space. Wish me luck in finding somewhere new soon!

Meanwhile, I have extracated some materials so I can continue my creative practice. Out of practicality I will work small, and will make this an opportunity to go back to basics, think about my practice, where I am going with it, and work in my sketchbooks.

Heres to a fab, creative, productive and especially happy 2020!

How exciting!

I am one of the Artists in Action at the Knitting and Stitching Show on Sunday 13th October at Alexandra Palace! I will see how the muse takes me, but will probably draw, paint, print and so some needle felting on papers and dyed cloth as samples. I am working on an abstract landscape language and looking forward to a good old play! Just sorting some bits to bring

Do come and say hello if you are at the show that day. Throughout the show there will be three different artists per day.

Been busy means that I have'nt posted in a while, oops! Busy with the Face to Face Penda project launch, launching my colour website,, and general life!

Meanwhile been enjoying working in the garden as well making the most of the lovely Spring weather.

Garden is a bit higgledy piggledy, but loving the vibrant colours it produces.

Happy May Day and May bank holiday!

This year has just flown by! The last few months there have been exhibitions and a Christmas Art Fair, plus finalising works for our Face to Face exhibition about Penda in April. Still a bit of finishing to do...

Lots of creative things to look forward to in the New Year, new workshops, exhibitions, art works plus doing more with my colour consutancy. Will share once details finalised.

Wishing you a happy, healthy and creative 2019! x

Our first members exhibition at the wonderful Little Buckland Gallery near Broadway was a fabulous mix of work and I was delighted to have 5 pieces included. I entered three colour pieces that were newly framed and they looked fab, as well as two screen printed and painted pieces on stretch frames.

Now the focus is purely on our Face to Face group exhibition on our Penda theme. Working on some texile pieces as well as exploring some cold wax oil painting. Keen to work on some new panels I bought recently as well as some oil pastels. Still working on my wild boar and other pagan symbols and marks!

Another highlight was visiting the Paraol Unit gallery in Islington to see the Heidi Bucher exhibition and her amazing building skins...using cloth and liquid latex. Oddly evocative.
