A long overdue update –

Next week, starting with a PV on Friday 2nd March (7-9 pm everybody welcome) some of my work will be in the Willow Gallery in Oswestry as part of an exhibition called ‘A Moment in Time’ with fellow artists Sara Piper Heap and Maggie Furmanek. Then on Saturday I begin a month as the guest Artist at small but wonderful Artworks Gallery in Aberdovey.
For the rest of the year- I will be exhibiting in the Open Studios in June ( 9/10 & 16/17, see www.borderlandvisualarts.com), The Oswestry Visitor Centre in August and The Seren Gallery in Machynlleth in September.

Back again with a new sleek website!

Coming up – BVA Open Studios on the weekends of June 11/12th and 18/19th with a group show or taster exhibition in The Willow Gallery in Oswestry from May 28th. Have a look at www.borderlandvisualarts.com for full details of all the studios and artists and their work.

Before and after that I always have some work in the Willow Gallery in Willow Street, Oswestry – the gallery also houses a really good little cafe – ideal for coffee or lunch but

Oswestry Litfest is fast approaching

So ~ to start my Blog . .. . . .

hounds 1 007The first six months of this year are beginning to look busy for me on the exhibition front and fortunately all fairly local to Oswestry (a small Shropshire town, close to the Welsh Border which is fast becoming a mecca for art and culture!)

firstly, February sees a small exhibition in Oswestry Library with Gill Crozier (www.gillcrozier.co.uk) using the space they have kindly set aside for The Borderland Visual Arts network members – exhibitions change monthly so there is always something good to see there.

Then – in March Oswestry hosts its fifth LITFEST which this year includes an exhibition at The Willow Gallery titled ‘Painting with Words’ part of which features GRIMM – A QUARTET OF PERSPECTIVES i.e.: the work of three of us – contemporary enameler  Maggie Furmanek, an inspirational Jeweller/metal worker Sara Piper Heap and me ( an evocative mixed media artist!) The private view is on Friday March 7th from 7-9pm so – if you are about please  join us.
