Another highlight this year, Buckinghamshire Museum have accepted my intaglio vinyl print of 'Buckingham Oak' for their permanent collection, which will hopefully go on show this autumn.


Currently showing work at the Norwich Print Fair, a wonderful diverse group show, of collagraph, mezzotint, lino, screen and drypoint, well worth a visit.
   artists in on Saturday 15th, our last day, do come and chat. 10 new artists selected this year, it's a really strong show.

Cley18

Having spent yesterday stewarding the Cley18 exhibition, at St Margaret's Church also at the Visitor Centre and the beach, Cley, I had a good chance to look at the amazing diversity of the work, beautiful ceramics, paintings, prints and textiles, at the show titled 'The Greater the Distance the Clearer the View' on till 5th August, well worth a visit. The image is my print contribution called 'Growth'. I walked and collected at monthly intervals plant material from the route of the three exhibition venues showing the seasonal changes in plants from December 2017 to June 2018. These are sun prints.
