25th Anniversary Summer Exhibition
blog imageblog image

I am so delighted that the lovely Byard Art Gallery on King's Parade in Cambridge, sold 3 of my paintings in their Summer Show which finishes on 3 September. One sold BEFORE the exhibition started with two of them going to America.

I love this gallery and regularly pop in to see their ever changing displays and must admit to getting pretty excited when one is displayed in the window of one of the most famous streets in England.

Thank you to everyone who visited my Open Studios

During Cambridge Open Studios this year I showed my work at St Andrew's Hall in Chesterton weekends 1 & 2 and for the last weekend I was back at home surrounded by the roadworks.

Thank you so much to everyone who visited and for all the lovely chats and for buying some of my artwork.

The highlight was making your own mini painting with copper or silver leaf during the last weekend at home. I actually lost count how many people made one but it must have been over 25. Well done everyone, they looked amazing.

Having a bit of a rest for a couple of days before I get ready to join my son at Birmingham Open Studios at the end of September. After that I shall be taking part in the Cambridge Drawing Society Exhibition in October, exhibiting at the Christmas Fair at the Pitt Building 25/26 November before the Byard Art Winter Exhibition in November.

....and on Wednesdays and Thursdays I shall be teaching art to small groups at home.

Last weekend of Cambridge Open Studios 2023

309 Milton Road, CB4 1XQ

After two weekends at St Andrew's Church in Chesterton, for the final weekend I am back in my own home studio. Much as I like sharing with other people, I cannot show how I work in a church hall although the final pieces look good there.

What I love best about Open Studios is the 'Meet the Artist' aspect where anyone can ask about what I do and how I do it and I can show them my tools and workplace. It is the essence of an Open Studio.

So this year I have a painting I can get on with when there are no visitors - yes it does happen! And I also have a table set up for anyone that visits to have a go with silver and copper leaf. Everyone seems to love doing that and people begin to understand how my paintings evolve.

If you are unable to visit my Open Studio, please contact me and we can arrange a visit at another time.

Cambridge Open Studios 2023

Opens 4 weekends in July
blog imageblog image

I always look forward to Cambridge Open Studios, it is a time when I show my work and also visit the studios of other artists. There is some fantastic and diverse art in Cambridge made by professionals and enthusiasts including painting, printmaking and even hat design! If you have a weekend free do pop along either to visit and encourage your local artists or choose one or ten across the whole of Cambridgeshire.

When I first started showing my work in 2007, there were people that visited ALL 141 of the venues. I don't know if anyone will do that this year now there are now 244 venues all over the county.

This July I am in two venues, St Andrew's Church in Chesterton on W/E 1 & 2, and at my home studio at 309 Milton Road on the 22 & 23 July, Cambridge CB4 1XQ. There are roadworks outside my house but you can park a bike on my drive or leave a car on Kendal Way opposite my house.

If you are able to visit me at home, I shall show how I make my paintings and everyone can make a mini painting with copper or silver leaf.
