News -2018

I’ve been busy during the last year creating a range of  sculptural works and artwork which were exhibited in a variety of shows

My willow chestnut sculpture was selected to go in the  Southampton Art Gallery Four Seasons Exhibition which was on show from February to April.

In early summer my  small studio/ shed  where I create my willow sculptures were completed in my garden

and the Keepers Artist Collective www.thekeepersartists.org.uk 

found a new home in East Street in Southampton so after the frustrating start to the new year I had now some space to paint  in.

I showed a selection of my willow sculptures and artworks at  two venue in Southampton as part of the  Hampshire Open Artist Studios , various craft and garden shows in Hampshire.

The visitors to the the Bursledon Art Society show in November voted my willow penguin as favourite 3d  exhibit which was lovely.

And the Keepers Artist Collective held their first art show downstairs at the studio space at the beginning of December.

The past year has been an interesting time I have needed to divide much of my energies between teaching willow sculpture and demonstrating and finding time to create and show my own work.  I am looking forward to the next year and new possibilities.
