Artist in Residence Exhibition Launch

My residency is almost over – and what a wonderful time it’s been! I have fallen in love with etching again, and had a chance to really push my work forward. Suzanne’s work has entranced me, filling my every thought with her characters and scenes from Paris and her travels.

So now it’s a chance for you to come and see both my work and Suzanne’s stunning etchings which have been my companions for the past 4 months. The Launch is on Saturday the 11th August and you are all welcome to come and join the celebrations.

Meet the Artist – Saturday 2nd June 2018

It would be lovely if you could join me for an afternoon of cake, collagraphs and chats this coming Saturday 2nd June 2018.

I am delighted to have the Meet the Artist event at Cank Street Gallery, Leicester to celebrate the closing of my “sketchbooks” exhibition at the Gallery. It has been such a lovely show, with some very kind and generous feedback – which was a relief as I did feel that opening my sketchbooks for a display was like delving into the back of a deep, dark cupboard – one never quite knew what would be pulled out! But, Dayle Flude, the owner of the gallery, with her expert eye, has selected a beautiful collection of pages that complimented each other perfectly (I wouldn’t have known where to begin).
