Collaborative work

Events, exhibition, Furniture, inspiration, News, Personal thoughts, screenprint | Comments Off on Collaborative work

Working with others inspires and enlightens. Sometimes it’s learning new skills, seeing a process through fresh eyes, bouncing ideas off one another or just enjoying having some company! It was also a compliment to be asked by Bruce to design a new show for him at Mount Edgcumbe, Cornwall where he exhibited with Miss Ivy’s […]


Website, blogging and preparation

Events, exhibition, In the Studio, News | Comments Off on Website, blogging and preparation

A little taste of what is to come. My face book page tells the story and I am spending a lot of time rebuilding this site and adding art work for sale. It takes as much time marketing as creating and I really wish I could clone myself to get all the jobs done […]

When you arrive at a show do you think about all that has gone by to arrive at that place? The hours of drawing, creating and experimenting. I’m afraid I don’t! I just enjoy that moment. I have then and there with each piece of work as I view it. I think about the colour, […]


Insideout- My trip in Ghost with Adam Chodzko

Events, inspiration, News, photography | Comments Off on Insideout- My trip in Ghost with Adam Chodzko

My trip underground with Adam Chodzko in Ghost In the dark confined space I took comfort from the deep resonating sounds of the voice. It was an intimate space, deeply secretive and gave light to ones innermost fears and thoughts. “This is where my father died”. It was a statement. Not one that invited comment or […]

I am thrilled with this opportunity and it is enabling me to work in new ways and media-particularly my textiles. 25 years ago I specialised in constructed textiles (weaving) and always wanted to print.

Harvesting Time Brentswood Walk

  Brentswood In 1879, James Dymond Langsford bought six acres of oak coppice known as Brentswood, in a steep wooded valley near St Mellion. He ‘ripped’ the south-facing slopes and planted, then grafted, cherry saplings. A juicy and sweet variety he called ‘Birchenhayes Early’ was the result. Granddaughter Natalie Allen recalled, “The branches met overhead […]

I really enjoyed working with The Delamore Team today. Lots of laughter mixed with hard work. Truly inspirational to see what can be achieved. It is very difficult to ensure balance, variety and equality between genres, media and discipline. It’s the tenth year and this exhibition is very different to previous. The views from the […]
