I’m happy to invite you to visit the studio at Norlington road from the 12th – 22nd of July.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks with this project and that project, upcoming shows and opportunities but I’ve neglected the studio so I thought I’d post a work in progress and fill in a little of what shows are coming up in the month of October Here’s an as yet untitled piece (I’ve got a couple of ideas for the title but undecided yet how it will finish) I’ve also been filming some work in the studio against my better judgement! but to use as promo for an upcoming show..

Bit of a gap in blog posts while I settled into the new space but it has been a good move for me. I’ve posted some of the recent work below and am currently working on a couple of new pieces in there. The studio is shared with 2 other artists Michelle Sweetman and Neil Benjamin, and it’s great to be back in a busy creative environment. I havea few shows coming up in the next week or so. An impromptu open hang in the Rag Factory, in the the apricot studio on the 14th April

The new studio will give a chance to work on some larger ink drawings that I have been thinking about recently. 8 New pieces of paper stretched up and drying so looking forward to a week of submerging m
