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, www.mariaboylecolour.com, 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.

Well no blog in August due to holidays and other busyness...


A great weeks holiday in Northern Ireland was had, plus a magical visit to coastal Donegal. Weather was a bit dissappointing, considering how much heat and sun we have had this summer, but I guess you don't go to Ireland for the weather! In between the showers lots of beaut walks and amazing views was enjoyed!


Also while in Donegal, visited fab artist Liz Doyle at her studio at Cruit Island. A warm welcome and a tour through her various wonderful works including a few about to be shipped to NY for a solo exhibition. Very inspiring.


Been busy on my Face to Face Group 'Penda project' and have got a 'show and tell' on Saturday. Been focussed on banners and stadards, pagan symbols, and wild boars...thinking about masculinity at the time of Penda, of the men and women constantly going to war. Working in print, cloth, and inspired by Liz Doyle experimenting in cold wax and oils. Feel like its getting there, ask me again after our meeting!


Also getting some pieces ready for an exhibition at Little Buckland Gallery near Broadway. Called 'Moments' it is a group show from Members of the ArtistWorkhouse from 29th September-7th October. Flyer attached, do visit!
