Unwritten Book Off to London….


Off down to London tomorrow to deliver this to

Llewellyn Alexander Gallery for submission to the

‘Not The Royal Academy’ Exhibition

Fingers crossed!!

Back to the Drawing Board! Brilliant!

025Digging my old drawing board from my LCP days out of the attic has transformed my working life! My shoulders are now full of the joys of spring, instead of being full of aches and pains!

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!

Books emerging on empty shelves…..


Big Smiley Face 🙂

Love it when I have a bit of a painting frenzy!! Not that I’m very frenzied in my approach, wandering and wondering off into nowhere land with my headphones shutting out the world at large…

A most successful weekend at Parallax Art Fair!!

What a busy weekend! The private view on Friday evening was a whirlwind – with much support from my wonderful family and friends. Then on Saturday and Sunday, down to business: lots of networking and sharing experiences with other artists; much enthusiasm for my work from visitors; definite interest from London galleries; a couple of commissions and several sales!!

I really couldn’t have asked for more….

I stayed on in London an extra day to explore galleries and scour second-hand bookshops for lots of inspiration for new paintings.

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