I’m showing work at the lovely Art House Cafe in Cromer from Monday 1st April until Saturday 11th May. Continuing my watery themes, ULTRA MARINE: An artistic journey under the waves’ , includes some photographic-based pieces, along with new prints and several ocean-themed paintings.
For the first time, I’ve also made some lovely ‘ocean-inspired’ jewellery featuring recycled vintage, antique & semi-precious beads and real drilled sea-glass. There are plenty of new greetings cards to choose from, as well as some attractive ‘dolphin’ tote bags, so you can say goodbye to plastic in style.
Fused glass artist Susan Purser Hope will be filling the Cafe window with her quirky and colourful bowls & dishes too.
There will be a PV at the cafe on Friday April 5th from 6.30-8.30 pm.
We’re working hard making new pieces for our joint exhibition in Marchat The Anteros Gallery in Norwich. Inspired by the fragile beauty of the marine environment of the Cromer Chalk reef, we contrast this unique world with the developing tragedy of plastic pollution in our oceans.
We’ve made both individual pieces and a number of collaborative ones featuring glass, print and paint in combination. I’ve also created some particular items for sale which I hope will raise funds to assist local groups working to help clean up Norfolk’s beaches and rivers. More about that soon.
Sharing our concerns, we’re pleased to welcome Anwen Hurt to our Private View on Thursday 7th March at 6~8 pm. Lady Hurt will be formally opening the exhibition and is a passionate ambassador for Norfolk and Norfolk arts.
I’ll be exhibiting with NOVA at The Belfry Centre for Music & Arts in Overstrand as part of the Festival, which launches on 19th October- the same evening as our exhibition opening. See the Coast website for full details of events all week. You are Invited to our Private View on Friday 19th October at 6.30pm. Wine & nibbles.
The first exhibition for the new Wells Maltings arts complex in Wells-Next-the-Sea opens at a Private View on TUESDAY 26th JUNE. The exhibition ends Sept. 30th.
I’m happy to say that one of my prints, ‘Natural History’ , (above) was selected. It was inspired by the crumbling sedimentary layers of the North Norfolk coastal ridge where I live and is part of a ‘History’ series of three images (below).

A great start for the NOVA exhibition at THE ART HOUSE CAFE in CROMER last night, Friday 25th May, when our PRIVATE VIEW attracted a good crowd. Thanks to Art House owner Liz James for hosting a lovely evening and to everybody who made such delicious food. Liz reports 5 sales already. Good luck to everyone.
I’m not doing as much exhibiting this year as in 2017, but will be curating a show for NOVA this summer. Details below and hope to see you there. An invite for the Private View is attached. My fellow artists are:
