Suffolk Open Studios 2018

The show in Court Cupboard Gallery went well, after braving the Welsh snow in time for the set-up and launch event… There’s a shot of the exhibition space below.

Court Cupboard Gallery, Llantilio Pertholey

It’s been a long winter, so it’s good to kick off 2018 with a new show at the Court Cupboard Gallery, Llantilio Pertholey, just outside Abergavenny.

The exhibition runs 9 March–10 May and will feature new work drawn from my own memories of the surrounding area, so I’m very much looking forward to seeing it on display in what really is a wonderful location.

One of the benefits of moving to Suffolk is the opportunity to join other artists on collaborative ventures such as this year’s Suffolk Open Studios.

I’ve already started preparing new work for the 2 weekends on which my studio will be open to the public: 17–18 and 24–25 June. Please put the dates in your diary now, to come and visit.

New studio!

The big news is that, following our move to Suffolk at the end of 2016, I now have my own studio with more space, excellent light and – almost a first for me – proper heating! It also doubles as a gallery, for me to show my new work. Here it is in the final stages of preparation:
