Exhibition now open.
In 2011 I was thrilled to receive the St Cuthberts Mill Award from Princess Michael of Kent. This was before I was elected to full membership of The Society of Women Artists in 2012.
In 2015 my painting ‘Blues Saxophonist’ won the Frank Herring Easel Award.
Dave and I had always planned to have a joint exhibition called Chalk + Cheese. Sadly, it didn’t happen while he was alive, so I’m going for it now. It will showcase his installation and sculpture work and a range of my own mixed media work too. There’s also an opportunity for past students of Dave to participate digitally.
The exhibition will take place at The Corn Exchange Gallery in Cardigan from the 15th – 20th February 2021.
Further details nearer the time.
About 18 months ago Dave my husband sadly passed away.
I spent the next year in a traumatised and anxious state and hid away from the world. Support through acupuncture, herbal tonics and counselling has helped a lot and I’m now feeling more able to engage with life and am back in my studio and have picked up my brushes again.
Since retiring from teaching, Dave completed a BA (Hons) in Sculpture at Carmarthen School of Art. He sculpted in mixed media and also embraced conceptual and installation art.
Really pleased to have four paintings selected this year. Unfortunately the exhibition is not able to go ahead at the Mall Galleries due to the current Covid-19 situation.
The Society of Women Artists thank the Mall staff for all their support and look forward to showing there next year with a stronger show than ever.
The exhibition will be open online from Tuesday 22nd September until Wednesday 30th December 2020.
