September 2019

New works coming out of the studio now – developing ideas that embrace printmaking thinking, x-ray imagery, framing, landscape, panoramic’s and even video film.

You can see the first four on the walls of the expanded Bookshop Restaurant and Shop in Hereford, which re-opened this week following wonderful refurbishment. It’s even mentioned in the Waitrose Good Food Guide!

They did an open call on Instagram – interesting approach, called on the theme of black and white. Where better to go and get amazing food and see a wide range of art, all black and white. Right up my street. They are not for sale in the restaurant but if you are keen to buy your own copy get in touch.

I’m delighted to say I have been awarded a Grants for the Arts to pursue the next stage – a publication – about the drawings, the River Severn and this fascinating landscape.

“What a fascinating and enriching exploration. The glimpse of your drawings makes me want to draw. Your text makes me want to walk to a river. The panoramic horizon makes me want to think far deeper and further than ordinarily.” Anthea Nicholson, author
