I will be running an online sale Friday 17th June prior to opening my studio in Hebden Bridge 1st – 3rd July. I have many seconds and one off pieces destined for both events as well as all my usual stock. You should be able to find examples of all my usual work and a few surprises.
I am delighted that my new work has been featured in the Yorkshire edition of Living North magazine as part of a write up of artists response to Tour de Yorkshire. Lovely to see the work of other artists with the same inspiration too. Read the article here.
I was delighted to hear that this year’s Tour de Yorkshire was taking in the East Coast. It gave me an excuse to spend a couple of days in one of my favourite parts of Yorkshire. The results, four more images that will soon be available as coasters, prints and cards and a lovely row of glass beach huts. Pre-orders welcome.

One of my favourite annual events, Art in the Pen opens for two days at the Skipton Cattle Market next weekend – Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th August.
