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.
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 will be showing with other artists in an exhibition organised by Heather Webster at the Loft gallery space above the shop at the wonderful National Trust property of Blickling Hall in Norfolk. Admission is free and a wide range of work will be on show and available to purchase, along with artist’s cards.
