A lightness of air

I was super excited to receive the invitation by Birch Tree Gallery to respond to a poem by local poet, John Killick. I decided to create a triptych with a limited palette and a textured surface to reflect the poem’s reference to textiles.

Inspired by the moors

I wanted to share with you my latest painting for my North York Moors project and my process creating it as it has been quite a tussle at times as I tried incorporating some new techniques into my work.

This painting will be heading off to the This Diverse Landscape exhibition at the Inspired by... gallery in the North York Moors National Park.

First exhibition of 2024

Following my successful exhibition with Studio Vault in 2022 I will be returning later this month with a new collection, just in time for when Emily moves into her larger gallery space.

To celebrate the launch of this collection I have had a limited edition of Tumultuous (pictured) printed which will be available from the start of the exhibition.

North York Moors - above Danby

My first site visit for my North York Moors National Park (NYMNP) project took place this month where I walked a circular route around and above Danby to get some inspiration for an exhibition in May 2024.
