Thank You to You

I tried - and made a boo boo - to send out an email to you wonderful people who subscribe to my website, follow me on social media and visit me at events BUT for some, strange reason, known only to the t'internet, it only went and vanished! So, please can you accept this as a heart-felt thank you for all of your support. Without you - sending me messages, reacting to my posts, visiting me at events, feeding back on my work, chatting with me and sharing your stories - what I do wouldn't be half as much fun! In particular, I would like to say a big thank you to those of you who made it to my most recent events, the Ashton Court mansion exhibition and the West Bristol arts trail. Your conversat

ON the Radio!

Not once, but TWICE over the West Bristol Arts Trail weekend, you could hear my dulcet tones over the air waves.

Do come and join us - we'll be open from Saturday 19th October 11 - 5pm and Sunday 19th from 11.30 - 5.30pm. I am convinced that the sun will be shining when you head over to se

Amazing Ashton Court

Artspace Lifespace pulled out all of the stops to hold a successful celebration at the mansion on 28th September. We were graced with the Smyth family - back from the dead, no less = to help the public tour their ancestral home and bring its history to life. (My children spent a happy hour knowingly looking for Dame Esme Smyth's dead dogs...). There were tours of the derelict upstairs for the first time in thirty years, swing dancing in the music room and a display of ideas from local schools, depicting what the mansion could become. My solo exhibition was on display in the paneled lounge, with artwork exploring some of the heritage details of the site. Add to this the information panels in
