Goedereede Arts Week, The Netherlands

I recently exhibited in 'Mothers and Daughters'  alongside Jan Bee Brown (who also curated the show), Stef Mitchell and Franka Wurzer. The exhibition, one of several in private houses opened for the duration of the festival, included work from the 'Woodend' series of window hangings, and glass wall panels. An exchange/collaboration with Coastival (Scarborough) and the Goedereede Arts Week festival is being researched for 2013, so watch this space for further details!              Read more

Art in Action

Art in Action is fabulous! A four day art fair where over 200 artists demonstrate as well as exhibit. I demonstrated for the first time this July, and had immense fun. Non stop talking to a constant flow of visitors for 4 days! Sold like hot cakes too. Hurray! Brilliant atmosphere and lovely people, tons to see and do, fab food, and in the beautiful surroundings of Waterperry House and Gardens, Oxfordshire. I thoroughly recommend it, for both visitors and artists! The light in the marquees was quite flat, so in the photo…Read more

The Studio Gallery, Scarborough

The gallery's website has…Read more

Playing at Art + Play

I recently took my daughter to have a look at the Art + play exhibition. I was happy to see that our artwork worked! She loved running and  walking through it, wafting and swirling the fabric around. I was also happy to see that the white ring reinforcements, as well as sticking to the silk, were also now dotted around the floor in true 'snowflake' style! Not sure the gallery staff will be quite so happy when it comes to removing them! Here's a few shots of other artworks in the show -…Read more

Art + Play

Art + Play is a touring exhibition initiated by 20:21 Visual Arts Centre, Scunthorpe. For this project I collaborated with Kathryn Welford - my sister. This has been our first collaboration of this kind, and it's been great fun working together. Six artists in total were commissioned to make an artwork that was targeted at under 5's and allowed that age group to interact or 'play' with it. Making something that could be grown-up art as well as  a play object for small children was pretty tricky! Part of the project involved spending time in a nursery and…Read more
