Photographs can’t do this exhibition justice! Spotted my little magpies perched on the top ledge before spending a joyful time exploring the other artwork. Bravo to the organisers, who have worked so hard to pull this off, and good luck to them for tonight’s event.

More information about the Secret Charter fundraising event, and why it’s so important, here.

Secret Charter 2018

I’m so delighted to have created a postcard – sized piece of art for the Secret Charter fundraiser…which sold out in 28 minutes this evening! I feel honoured and humbled to be part of an incredible list of contributors which includes Ralph Steadman, Antony Gormley, Gillian Wearing, Tracey Emin and Julian Opie to name but a few. Excited doesn’t really cover it…

The Secret Charter event will provide desperately needed funds for the arts at The Charter School North Dulwich. The exhibition will be at The Dulwich Picture Gallery on Monday 15th October, and that evening the postcards will be revealed to their new owners. I’m not allowed to show you the actual postcard yet, so here’s another in the meantime!

Southwark Cathedral Draw and Tour

monuments

Southwark Cathedral is home to many amazing monuments with fascinating stories behind them. Join me on Wednesday 20th June at 7pm to explore a selection of the monuments through observational pencil sketching whilst learning about their histories from our knowledgeable Cathedral Guide.

The two hour session will begin with a short drawing workshop, after which we will move around the Cathedral, with time to return to a point of interest for a longer drawing at the end.

Please contact me for further details and to book.

Artists’ Open House…weekend #1

What an amazing weekend. Such an honour to exhibit alongside other artists of different disciplines including ceramics, painting and collage. The Belham Primary School children’s art was incredible and so varied.

We welcomed visitors on both Saturday and Sunday and I enjoyed meeting new people and discussing my work, as well as seeing familiar faces.

Onwards to next weekend – we’ll be there from 11am – 4pm on both days (Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th May). I hope to see you there!
