Welcome to my newsletter, keeping you up-to-date with the latest from my studio.
While I continue to slowly recover from the slog of long Covid, I am able to spend more time creating art than I could last year. Being creative helps me to feel mentally well, which also helps somewhat with my physical wellbeing.
Phoenix, pictured above, is so-named because it was the first large-scale artwork that I was able to create since catching Covid last March.
The pandemic put all sorts of events on hold over the last year and a half, including exhibitions for many artists.
After a long wait, I am now very much looking forward to exhibiting some of my newer artworks including Phoenix this month with Junction 12 Art Group. Ten group members will be exhibiting at the Gardens Gallery in Montpellier Gardens, Cheltenham from 28 July to 3 August.
I will be stewarding at the exhibition on the afternoon of 28 July and the morning of 3 August.
I will then be exhibiting at the Dove Gallery in Winchcombe with fellow Junction 12 Art Group artists Beverley Perry and Debbie Smith. Beverley creates wonderful landscapes, and I am really enjoying her new looser style. Debbie Smith creates really beautiful fused glass pieces, so between us we will have a range of affordable art for all tastes.
We will be at Dove Gallery from 27 August to 1 September, and I will be stewarding on Monday 30 August, the afternoon of Tuesday 31 August, and Wednesday 1 September.
