North Yorkshire Open Studios 2017 comes to a close

  This morning I’m packing up and reflecting on the last two busy weekends of North Yorkshire Open Studios 2017.  Your visits and comments have made me very happy – thankyou. So many of you have talked of ‘wanting to touch’ and the ‘huggability’ of my stones – which is a lovely thing – and […]

Sculpture in the Garden – a map

  This afternoon I’ve been putting together a map, showing the locations of my sculpture in the garden – so if you’re visiting Nunnington Hall you won’t miss any! Just as I finished I got a call from a lady to say she’d been round the garden today and loved her visit, especially coming across […]

Sculpture in the garden at Nunnington Hall

  Here is Hedgehog in the Cutting Garden (which is also the vegetable garden) at Nunnington Hall. All the pieces arrived in the rain and wind, it was a very soggy setting up, but today they enjoyed the drying sunshine and look much happier. High Moor Goat surveys – looking out on a live willow […]

White Birds Sculpture

  Three stone birds make up this sculpture – I suppose a triptych of sorts – which I’ve carved in Portland Limestone.  The bird shapes are similar, but each in a slightly different, but associated pose and designed to be appreciated together. The birds are part of Naturalithic my exhibition at Nunnington Hall which opens […]

Open Studio weekends

      It is very busy here preparing for Open Studios – finishing sculptures and making plinths so my pieces look their best for when you visit. My ‘Open Studio’ venue is the Village Hall in Lastingham this year – it is right in the middle of the village, parking is easy right outside, […]

North Yorkshire Open Studios 2017 Brochure

    We’re just eight weeks away from the start of North Yorkshire Open Studios 2017.  (That’s come round quickly!) On Wednesday I went to a meeting at the Milton Rooms, in Malton held by the NYOS17 organisers to collect the printed publicity material, brochures, posters, signage and to get all the information about the […]

Preview night – RyeScape Exhibition

    After all the preparation it is a lovely thing to have a busy Preview night.  Ryedale Folk Museum created a warm and welcoming entrance to the Gallery, serving refreshments and nibbles to the stream of visitors.     The Gallery looked lovely with the selected works by artists living and working in Ryedale. […]

Westonbirt Weekend – Gardens Illustrated Festival

  At the weekend I exhibited at the Gardens Illustrated Festival held at Westonbirt School, Tetbury in the heart of the Cotswolds. It was dark by the time I arrived to set up, but there was lots of activity in the marquee which was flood-lit and festooned in bunting with all the spaces marked out […]

Art& show – York 2017

    In October last year I showed my sculpture at The Art Market in York, which was a very busy and successful event, so I was hoping I would be selected again this year.  Since that time the artists who organise the exhibition have been really busy, they’ve grown, with exciting changes and new […]
