Crystal Palace Artists’ Open House 2020

What a brilliant weekend! After a difficult day on Saturday with visitors dodging the sleet showers, everything came together on Sunday as the sun came out. It was brilliant to share my artwork and talk to visitors about my workshops and I enjoyed meeting new people and welcoming back some familiar faces. We even managed to just about get through all of the cake, with a little help from my in-house cake eating team : )
