Embroidery Magazine

The article Jo Hall wrote about my work is now in the current Jan/feb edition of Embroidery Magazine. It is a six page interview and looks great, I am really pleased with it.

It's always a relief when choices have been made and a new piece of work moves through the planning and experimenting stages and finally starts taking shape. I have just finished painting the background for my next piece of work and worked out my colours so here I go at long last!!!!

The Beetroot Tree

After an early morning start the snow held off and I managed to deliver my work to the Beetroot Tree Gallery in Draycott, Derbyshire, where I am their featured artist for the next eight weeks. It is a lovely Gallery with a great cafe, so if you are in the area come along and take a look.

The Beetroot Tree

I must officially promote my next exhibition as the featured artist at the Beetroot Tree Gallery in Derbyshire which starts on the 8th of January. I am taking my work up on Friday and it will be exciting to see the gallery as I haven't been there before and they are very supportive of Applied Art and Designer Craft.


It's now officially 2011 and the end of the Pop up shop exhibition which I really enjoyed. I was due to collect my work during the Christmas snow which was really stressful as I didn't want to leave it in the shop over the Christmas holidays. Luckily as the snow slightly subsided I was able to meet Mike from the New Hope Trust and retrieve it all. So now Christmas is a fond memory and my children are safely back at school I am about to embark on a new piece of work, this I find the most difficult time choosing what picture out of the ones I have planned in my mind shall I do next. I can put it off no longer decisions have to be made!!!
