A Hint of Things to Come . . .

In September, I will be exhibiting some new work as part of a Group Exhibition with Diverse Threads. Exhibition details can be found under the Exhibitions tab, but here's a sneak preview of work in progress.

Exhibition Time . . . again

It's nearly time for Prism's annual exhibition in London. This year, there's a new venue - Hoxton Arches Gallery which is just by Hoxton Station. The exhibition runs for nearly two weeks this time, and has late openings on Thursdays and Fridays.

The gallery is just next to the station.

This is just a taster of the work I will be showing - my take on Lines of Communication.

My work is all packed and ready to deliver - it promises to be a fantastic exhibition in this new venue, and with the Geffrye Museum nearby there's the makings of a really good day out.

A Big Surprise

I've had some work accepted into the Platform Gallery Craft Open Exhibition in Clitheroe.The exhibition opened yesterday and runs until July 4th. Further details are on the Exhibitions page

My pieces are cut and stitched paper developing from work I exhibited at the Knitting and Stitching Shows last year.

The big surprise is that I've been awarded the Selectors' Prize for Innovation - totally unexpected, and for once I was practically speechless. There's a nice picture here on the Gallery's twitter page, and if that isn't enough there's a slightly fuzzy one here.

The prize comes with the opportunity to have a showcase in an exhibition at the gallery later this year, so (as they say) watch this space.
