HOME GROUND – SOLO EXHIBITION OF NEW WORKS
THURSDAY 20 – SUNDAY 23 OCTOBER 2022 AT THE PACKHORSE, SOUTHSTOKE
PREVIEW EVENT THURSDAY EVENING 5-9. Please email to attend the evening preview.

Once every two years I hold a solo exhibition. This year I celebrate the stunning scenery around my studio and thought it appropriate to hold the event upstairs at my local Packhorse Pub close by (of which I have a share as part of the community!)
Watercolour landscapes will be on display, charting the passage of daylight across terrain that I know intimately as I pass through on my walks.

THE SOCIETY OF WOMEN ARTISTS 160TH ANNUAL OPEN EXHIBITION:
6 – 11 September 2022

Our exhibition recently closed at the Mall Galleries in London. It ran 7 – 11 September 2022 and we were delighted that the Exhibition was officially opened by His Royal Highness the Duke of Kent on behalf of our Patron Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent.

On Thursday 8 September I gave a demonstration of watercolour portraits at 1pm alongside my two paintings of young women that were hanging in the gallery (pictured below.)
Opening times were: 10am to 5pm daily until closing at 5pm on Sunday 11.

SOLO EXHIBITION: LUX – AN EXHIBITION OF LIGHT:
Wednesday 21 October to Sunday 25 October 2020:
Venue: 44AD Artspace, 4 Abbey St, Bath BA1 1NN next to Abbey Square.
My previous solo exhibition just squeezed in before lock down late in 2020. 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.
