Busy getting ready for Somerset Open Studios 2023 16 Sept - 1 Oct - the guide has landed and it's all go now!

I've just heard that this piece 'At the Margins' has been selected for the ING Discerning Eye exhibition at the Mall Galleries - very exciting! It's a mixed media piece comprising a collagraph print with a monotype layer of tissue over, strips of oil painted paper and drypoint. I like the panoramic format of the piece and the subtleties of colour and texture the techniques allowed me to achieve.

'Ebb and Flow' group exhibition opens today at Studio Cennen in Llandeilo and runs till 25th September 2022. Really excited to be a part of this show in a beautiful gallery in the Welsh countryside.

Very excited to have had these two pieces selected for the RWA 169th Open exhibition in Bristol this year (8th October 2022 to 8 January 2023.) 'Scatter 1' and 'Scatter 2' were produced in 2020 using oil painted and printed papers on card. They are a response to scattered sometimes dazzling light cast across water. Bands of subtle colours and textures; some very tactile, others glossy and reflective with lines of thread wrapping the surface.

Really happy to have this piece 'Over There' selected for the 117th Bath Society of Artists Open exhibition which runs from 14th May - 2nd July 2022

This piece 'High Tide 2' has been selected to be shown in the Bath Society of Artists 115th Annual Open exhibition, which this year is a virtual show and is on from Nov 2 2020 to Jan 3 2021
