New work and new galleries!

Hi there

It's been far too long since my last blog - a few weeks with a slightly altered routine can really shake things up! I've been working hard on my growing linocut collection and had my first day of printing with a press last week, which produced some great results! I have also been working on some pieces for two new stockists - I'm really excited to say that soon my work will be available in the Leeds Craft Centre and Design Gallery, and Monmouth - based gallery The New Leaf Gallery.

The New leaf Gallery are holding an exhibition called 'Painting Wales - Home and Away' from April 26th to May 21st, in which I will be showing three new collages. Luckily, I know the south coast of Wales very well from childhood holidays, so I'm really excited to use the area as inspiration. I have already completed one piece, based on Tenby harbour.

A selection of my collages and my new linocuts will be available from the Leeds Craft Centre from the beginning of May, including my latest print of Walmgate Bar in York.

I took a very brief trip down to London last week, to drop off my pieces for the Royal Academy Summer Show. The pictures have to be judged, and I will hear the outcome at the end of May, Fingers Crossed!

My next job is to choose a piece to enter into the North Yorkshire Open Studios taster exhibition 'Secret Places, Hidden Gems', which will be held at the Royal Hall in Harrogate from May 31st to June 17th. don't forget I will be taking part in the open studios event this year at ArtisOn near Masham, on the 9th/10th and 16th/17th of June!

Thats all for now, have a great week.
