What a wonderful event

The Yorkshire Artspace Open Studios event was a great success and as usual, a fantastic experience.  It’s been a couple of years since I’ve been able to take part, last year I was ill and the year before I was in-between studios, so it was great to be back chatting to all the visitors and… Read more »

Colour Inspiration

There is a lot of waiting at the moment, waiting for my HUGE screens and squeegees to arrive and of course, waiting on the fabric delivery but I have a lot to keep me busy whilst all of that is ticking along nicely in the background. My most important job at the moment is working… Read more »

Back in the land of the internet

Sorry I’ve been very quiet lately.  I’ve been in a self imposed internet hibernation as it’s taking longer than I expected to get things in order in the studio, plus I’ve had my head down finishing the designs for my new metre collection.  The good news is that the table top is now on, it… Read more »
