What's on August/September...


I am busy preparing for a number of exciting events coming up in the next couple of months, including art fairs and exhibitions, so please read on for information on where to see my newest work next.

Art in The Pen - 16th/17th
Coming up fast is Art in the pen, a fantastic and unusual art fair based in Skipton cattle mart! Featuring work from over 100 artists and makers, each displaying their wares in a cattle pen. It's my third year taking part in this event, and the quality an diversity of work is always impressive. Even better, admission is only £2, and refreshments are available on site. For information on getting there, and to see the full list of artists taking part, visit the website here.

Mini exhibition at York Hospital  - 20th August to 20th October
I am delighted to have been invited to exhibit some new pieces at York Hospital as part of their art and design scheme. For two months any visitors to the hospital will be able to find a small collection of my work located down the main corridor (close to junction 5). The works celebrates York and the surrounding area, with subjects including Castle Howard, the old Terry's factory ('The Chocolate Works') and Baile Hill. All work will be for sale directly through me, and the exhibition is in a completely public area so anyone can visit. I will be making a donation to the hospital's art and design scheme from any work sold. Visit York Hospital's website for more information on the scheme.

New work at Alchemy art and framing, Macclesfield - September onwards
Three new pinned papercuts will soon be on the walls at the Alchemy gallery, Macclesfield. The new pieces are inspired by some of the stunning follies in the local area including Mow Cop and White Nancy.

The Way Through The Woods - September 13th to November 2nd
Masham Gallery
I will be presenting some new, woodland inspired pieces for the forthcoming exhibition at Masham Gallery. The exhibition features a diverse mix of painting, print, woodwork and textiles, plus my papercutting of course! Other artists include Hester Cox.

That's all from me for now, there are more events coming up later in the year, including Art for Youth North and The Art Market, but more on those later!
