New work will be shown at the Thompson Spare Gallery from June 7th-July 5th.

This is an exciting new gallery and I am delighted to have been invited to have a solo show there.

The title of the show is ‘Land’ and will include my most recent paintings, drawings and monotypes, a continuation of my relationship with the land of Wales and Sussex.

Thompson Spare Art is at 52 High Street, Tunbridge Wells Kent TN11XF. The gallery is only a 5 min walk from Tunbridge Wells Station.They are open from 9-5 Monday to Saturday.

I will also be opening my studio as part of the Stables Open Studios for the weekend of June 30th and July 1st. 11am-6pm.

I will have unmounted drawings and prints and a few framed pieces for sale.

Our Open studios are a great social event with food and drink served by Graze and hopefully a sunny day to sit out and enjoy the Country Park.
Our address is Fairlight Place Farm, Barley Lane Hastings TN35 5DT.
Hope to see you there.

My work can also be found at the Rye Art Gallery. 107 High Street Rye. TN317JE

Having spent the past four years making repeated visits to Pembrokeshire, I am delighted to have four paintings at the Goat Street Gallery in St David’s. A gallery definitely worth visiting with beautiful tapestries and ceramics created by the owners, Dan and Amanda.

I have also been selected to take part in the ‘Showcase’ exhibition, a curated show of SoCo artists to be held at the Arts Forum in St Leonards. Exhibition opens on June 14th until June 26th.

The work I will be showing is selected from my ongoing body of work, titled ‘Internal Landscapes’.

In 2015 I was diagnosed with cancer and my life turned inwards. No longer able to balance on the edge looking outwards I decided to draw on my emotional response to my internal landscape.Once treatment was finished I was able to spend short amounts of time in the studio reflecting on the changes I was feeling at a cellular level. I have found that visualising and recording my body’s response to the cancer and the treatment has been cathartic and restorative.

These landscapes, with other work will be exhibited at the Conquest Hospital during the Coastal Currents festival in Hastings, which runs throughout September.
