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.
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.
Do have a look at my page on the RWSW website which has now gone live. Looking forward to my first exhibition with them in July at Oriel Y Parc, St Davids which will be a virtual exhibition initially, hopefully with a physical exhibition slot later in the year.
This July, my work will feature in a Royal Watercolour Society of Wales exhibition at Oriel Y Parc, St Davids. Due to the pandemic, the exhibition will be initially held online.
The theme for the show is ‘Vision and Heritage’, displaying work showing the landscape and life of Wales in all it’s varied forms and including images reflecting the diverse beauty of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
We are hoping the exhibition will physically be able to happen either later in the year or next year.

I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to exhibit alongside other professional artists whose work contains a focus on the versatility of water-based media on paper.
Showcasing my work within the Society’s lively exhibition programme at quality exhibition venues both within Wales and internationally, will bring new audiences to my work.

Recently been updating both my copy and images on AXIS – check out the direct link below:

Sunny but breezy day in Cardiff earlier today for the Private View at Boundary Art. Interesting mix of work in 2D and 3D and excellent refreshments provided in the Chinese Tea Garden by Joan. First experience of Chinese tea ceremony for me, a great way to relax and soak up the ambience. Really pleased to have my work hung beautifully in front of faceted ceramics by Kin Leung. If you were unable to get to the Private View, the exhibition runs until 30th April. Gallery open Wednesday to Sunday 11am to 6pm. www.boundaryart.com
