New Exhibition: ULTRA MARINE at The Art House Cafe, Cromer

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.

All welcome.
