Coming soon to a Town Hall near you (if you live in Hebden Bridge that is!!)…..

As I am currently rather busy focusing on painting, I will be selling off some of my lino prints and screen prints at the Town Hall Print Fair in Hebden Bridge in order to make some more space in my studio!!
Come and take a look – there’ll be other artists from Northlight Art Studios on my stall, and a whole selection of other printmakers at the fair!

Exghausted now, but back to the studio tomorrow. I can’t wait to get going on lots of new work!!
