I’m currently showing my work at Pittenweem Arts Festival, in venue 82. Ovenstone 109 is a fledgling brewery and lovely new festival venue which opened this year – formerly a John Deere tractor showroom – (my siblings and I used to enjoy passing by!)
Here’s some photos. There are 11 other artists and makers exhibiting their work here. You can see their websites and work here. We’re open until Sunday 13th August, from 10 am until 6 pm each day.

Update: The paintings are for sale here.
My exhibition ‘Lune Year’ opens next Saturday at Halton Mill – a series of paintings and drawings of the River Lune since last December, after Storm Desmond. I thought it might be nice to put them all online as a gallery. So here they are 🙂 or rather, this is most of them and I will add the others when I can.

A small watercolour sketch of four pansies. Painted at my Art in the Park class in the Ashton Memorial yesterday. Perched on top of the hill with the wind howling around us, it felt like February not May. The class were practising watercolour techniques, it is our aim to get back outside sketching if/when spring returns.
Flowers with several colours are ideal for watercolour because using a wet in wet technique you can allow the water to mix the colours for you, swirling into one another.

I’m opening my studio on Saturday 29th November – come along and have a blether with me and some of my fellow artists at Halton Mill . Original artwork and limited edition prints available as well as the chance to browse beautiful hand-made gifts at the craft fair. The mill will be open between 11 am – 5 pm and all are welcome, although unfortunately my studio is only accessible via stairs.
Here’s a flyer for the event.
