I have recently completed two new landscapes – one of a ploughed field shown above entitled “Pinstripes and patchwork”, plus “Chasing Waterfalls”. They will both be joining works by fellow members of the Society of Women Artists in a showcase exhibition at Patchings Art Centre near Nottingham.

Physical art trails are back! I am waiting on 2022 dates but here are a few from 2021:

Cam Valley Art Trail : Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th November 2021:
Venue: Conygre Hall, North Rd, Timsbury, Bath BA2 0JQ
I will be demonstrating my gravity painted watercolours on Saturday 6 November 12-1 to tie in with the event.
More details: on the Cam Valley Arts trail website.

Combe Down Art Trail, Bath – Was Saturday 11 – Sunday 12 September 2021:
We are looking forward to this year’s art trail after a virtual only exhibition in 2020. I will be back at the Museum of Bath Stone.
More details: on the Combe Down Art Trail website.

Widcombe Art Trail, Bath: Was Saturday 28 – Sunday 29 August 2021:
I will be meeting visitors at the Widcombe Social Club on Widcombe Hill, Bath. This is the home of my Bath Watercolour Workshops and I’ll be chatting about these and more.
Details: on the Widcombe Art Trail website

Wylye Valley Art Trail, Wiltshire/Dorset 1-9 May 2021:
Sadly I couldn’t make the 2021 WVAT due to a change in dates. The trail takes place in May every other year and so I’m now sadly going to have to wait until May 2023 to take part again. I show my work at my old family home. Studios, galleries and barns create a gorgeous trail throughout the beautiful countryside around the Wiltshire/Dorset border.

Wednesday 21 October to Sunday 25 October 2020:
Venue: 44AD Artspace, 4 Abbey St, Bath BA1 1NN next to Abbey Square.
My exhibition just squeezed in before lock down late last year. It featured luminous watercolours inspired by the elusive quality of light. It was absolutely lovely to see clients (socially distanced behind face masks!) as well as chat about workshops and watercolour techniques.
