I’ve definitely made use of the first  weeks of the year. A break  from shows has given me the time to play with new ideas and mediums.That, in turn, means that I can catch up with the ‘when I’ve got a minute’ list which I and most other  artists keep in their heads. I’ve had great fun and, I think, some exciting new pieces have materialised. The early sunshine and abundance of flowering bulbs means that Spring is very well represented.

I’m looking forward to the first of this years shows and I’ll be at the RHS Gardens, Hyde Hall 3rd-6th May. It’s always a great show and a time to catch up with fellow artisans and old friends. Here’s hoping for good weather but, no matter what, I know that I’ll meet lots of lovely people.

I will also be at RHS Hyde Hall in the Made in Essex marquee for the Annual Flower Show 31st July-4th August. A fabulous event and   a very busy one but…bring it on.

After that it’s exhibitions, workshops and shows pretty much non stop. It promises to be a busy and eventful year.

I’m already booked with a neww workshop venue for next year. Details will appear shortly.

2018 turned out to be the busiest so far. Workshops; exhibitions; commissions and lots of shows. I took part in the RHS Hyde Hall Flower Show, for the first time with ‘Made in Essex’, which is part of the Essex Craft and Design Show. What an amazing 5 days. In spite of being the hottest days of a very hot summer we saw so many people and, a first for me, more or less sold out of cards! It was great fun too. I also did 2 Christmas shows at Hyde Hall  with https://www.facebook.com/essexcraftanddesignshow/. This was another  huge success. I met lots of lovely new people over the course of the year and, hopefully, made quite a few new friends. Now it’s time to start all over again. Workshops are already starting; shows and exhibitions are planned and, exciting new possibilities are presenting themselves too. Bring it on.
