Happily a friend just found my artwork featured on the front page of ArtRabbit,
My self portrait etching is front-centre below.
Nice to see my artwork getting around. I do always feel like it’s got a life of it’s own, especially when I release the image into the world, material or virtual.
Find out about the exhibition this Friday 18th December through the ArtRabbit article,
or the FB Event,
and come down – it’s going to be lovely

I’m happy to say I’ll be taking part in a group exhibition Obsession: Love, Ritual, Collection at the Embassy Tea Gallery in June.
My work for this exhibition is based in the art of letter-writing, as a certain ritual that embodies love, collection and, sometimes, obsession. I find that there is a spill over from words into images and vice versa…… subtle links between our verbal and image-based languages that can be very powerful.
Letters are a subject I have been exploring for a long time both in personal and in community work: Painted Veils
