Exhibiting - Handmade at Kew

Back from an amazing five days exhibiting in the beautiful setting of Kew Gardens with Handmade in Britain. It was my third year at this show and the best for a variety of reasons. Huge thanks to the lovely people who visited my stand. I enjoyed some lovely conversations and had bumper sales. Now back home and busy preparing for the next trip out to exhibit with Staithes Studios at ART& at York Racecourse 27th - 29th Oct. But before then we have our most important event of the year this week - our daughters wedding - so excited!

Exhibiting - October

Throughout October the Art Fair season really kicks in and my work will be travelling south to be shown at Handmade at Kew 12- 15th  and then back north for Art& at York 27th - 29th. Closer to home it can be seen in a couple of exciting exhibitions. I have two pieces in the InPrint Biennale ,a multi space print exhibition spanning across The Ropewalk Gallery, Eleven and KAG and is part of Hull City of Culture programme (my work can be seen at Studio Eleven on Humber street). A further three pieces can be seen at The Python Gallery in Middlesborough in Curated Space.

Equinox Workshop

Delivering a Mono printing from nature workshop in the beautiful Lund Studios, passing on knowledge and working from nature has been the perfect way to spend the Autumn Equinox. The students worked so hard today and produced some beautiful prints and artists books - far to many too show them all on here - but here is a taster!
