Work in progress, 'On The Hillside' inspired by the colours of the fabulous Welsh woollen tapestry blankets I saw being made at Trefriw and the patchwork fields of the nearby hills on a recent trip to Snowdonia.

Very soon I will be joining the St Jude's printmakers and my work will be available to buy through their online gallery. I have followed and loved the work of all of the St Jude's artists for many years so it is with great pleasure that I am going to join them! Back in the nineties I studied at the Royal College of Art with Jonny Hannah and Mark Hearld who were in my year. So along time ago, but fond memories of two great years there.
My latest screenprint in soft greens and greys. I'm so pleased with this piece it really came together after a few days in the printmaking studio. It's available to buy. £245

Moss Hill, screenprint and pencil on Fabriano Rosaspina. Edition size 12, 76 x 56cm £245
This is my most recent print and now available in my shop. It's the same size as 'Meal Hill' below, which I made last year. I really loved 'Meal Hill' so I wanted to continue the series. They make a great pair!

This month I sent work to Columbia Road Gallery, London. The Gallery opened it’s doors in the Summer of 2005. The aim was to create a presence in London which accurately represented the modern artistic talent coming out of Cornwall. The owner, herself born and raised in Cornwall, hand picks each exhibit directly from the artist’s home or studio, this care and attention shows through in the collection as a whole. I’m delighted to have work on dispay here, I’m not from Cornwall myself but I think my work has a certain St Ives feel about it.
Thumbnail images of some of the drawings I have been working on in 2017. I wish I could make them all into huge screenprints, but there aren't enough hours in the day! Which shall I choose first.....? I think I'm going to start with the two square ones. There must be 25 layers here, so plenty to keep me busy over the next few weeks.

Lots of exciting things in the pipeline at the start of the year.
I begin printing again this week, it's nice to be back in the swing again.
I have pieces going to a gallery in London, I'll keep you posted on that.
My R.A Summer Exhibition entry for 2017 has been purchased! Now to get on with the work to submit......
I plan to finish my screen printing studio in the coming months, all is going well so far. I have a new insulated floor, and electricity!
This is where I work at the moment. It's great, but it's a dream come true to have my own place at home.
Happy New Year!
