I'm delighted to say that a drawing of mine (left) has been selected as part of the St Ives Well Wishers Project ~ it will be included in a procession as part of the St Ives September Festival and as far as I can gather it will be presented on the train of a tailor made designer dress!

Find out more at St Ives Well Wishers ~ I will tell you more as I find out myself!

The drawing itself will be on display in the gallery throughout the Festival as part of the Open Studios Programme. Many thanks to Andrea Carr, Elise Langley and Jo Maynes who have worked so hard on this idea, I remember chatting to Jo about it well over a year ago. It will be very exciting to see the results and I LOVE the fact that the kiddies will be so involved.

"Aching Wing"

I just finished a new linocut which kind of sums up how I'm feeling at the moment ~ the town is so full there is no room to spread out!

We all suffer from aches and pains in our lives and this is my response to that. Gravity pulls on our bodies throughout the day and this is a reminder to myself and the viewer to take care of ourselves.

The Smallest Studio in St Ives?

I have been thinking about the St Ives September Festival and have decided to be included in the popular Open Studios event this year, more details to follow as I get more organised. I do, however, have the tiniest space......... maybe I should use this as a Unique Selling Point! This photograph was taken standing in the doorway after my big print~off last week.

"Sulking Mermaid" and "Moody Angel" are continuing to sell really well through the gallery and can also be purchased from the website, click here if you would like one for yourself.

"Filigree In Blue" (SOLD) and "Filigree~Adagio"

I've uploaded a new photo of these pieces as I don't think I did it properly last time! Thanks for the nod, Lesley! St Ives is PACKED with visitors and it's turning out to be a very busy season. I hope you are having lots of sales and interesting conversations down at the other end of the town as well!
