Herts Open Studios, September 2018


Throughout September I'll be taking part in Herts Open Studios with fellow watercolourist and printer Teresa Newham. We will be doing painting and printmaking demos, showing off our art and plying visitors with tea and cake. Oh, and there will be prints, cards and other lovely stuff. We will be open between 10am and 5pm on Wednesday 12th, 19th and 26th and Saturday 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th of September. You will find more information at the Herts Visual Arts Website and for information about all the other artists taking part across Hertfordshire, see the full Open Studios Catalogue here.

Earth Pathways Diary 2018


I'm thrilled that my painting 'Beech, Sharpenhoe Clappers' has been included in the 2018 Earth Pathways Diary. Earth Pathways produce beautiful diaries and calendars that honour the Earth and her cycles and is produced by a fantastic team of wonderful women. This lovely old Beech at Sharpenhoe Clappers, near Barton-le-Clay, is full of character and is an old friend. Its exposed roots clasp an ancient earthwork and when I was a child I used to swing from a rope seat attached to one of its huge overhanging branches. Alas, the branch and the rope are gone but the old tree still flourishes. Wonderful to see it shared through this diary.
