Easterly Artists’ leaflet

I’ll be joining 4 other local artists in the Waveney area in Suffolk, to open our studios to the public and give visitors the opportunity to meet us direct and ask us (almost!) any questions about our practice.

Other artists taking part are:
Hugh Davies
Lisa Hurcum
Fiona Shreeve
Nina Roffey

If you’re in the area that weekend, do drop in to see us. Click here to download a copy of the trail leaflet.

Nice surprise at The Hunter’s Moon in Llangattock Lingoed

Dropped into one of my old haunts on the way back from a very successful show at the Court Cupboard Gallery, to be greeted by the owners asking to keep some of my work and display it on the walls in the restaurant. Bonus!

Apex Exhibition, Bury St Edmunds

Great show at the Apex Gallery, Bury St Edmunds, in April, with 5 of my pieces on display as part of the Suffolk Open Studios 2018 exhibition of work by this year’s participating artists.

Took a little time up a ladder to finalise the hanging, but well worth the effort and a lot of good work on show!

Suffolk Open Studios 2018

The show in Court Cupboard Gallery went well, after braving the Welsh snow in time for the set-up and launch event… There’s a shot of the exhibition space below.

Court Cupboard Gallery, Llantilio Pertholey

It’s been a long winter, so it’s good to kick off 2018 with a new show at the Court Cupboard Gallery, Llantilio Pertholey, just outside Abergavenny.

The exhibition runs 9 March–10 May and will feature new work drawn from my own memories of the surrounding area, so I’m very much looking forward to seeing it on display in what really is a wonderful location.

Suffolk Open Studios 2017

One of the benefits of moving to Suffolk is the opportunity to join other artists on collaborative ventures such as this year’s Suffolk Open Studios.

I’ve already started preparing new work for the 2 weekends on which my studio will be open to the public: 17–18 and 24–25 June. Please put the dates in your diary now, to come and visit.

New studio!

The big news is that, following our move to Suffolk at the end of 2016, I now have my own studio with more space, excellent light and – almost a first for me – proper heating! It also doubles as a gallery, for me to show my new work. Here it is in the final stages of preparation:
