New galleries for 2022
I am very pleased to be represented by some leading contemporary galleries for the first time this year.
Arundel Contemporary is an independent art gallery founded in 2009 and dedicated to exhibiting and promoting contemporary British and International artists. The gallery is situated in Arundel, West Sussex and features an eclectic mix of original art: oil and acrylic paintings, mixed media paintings on canvas and paper, drawings as well as original and Limited Edition prints, etchings and digital art prints.
Bevere Gallery, located just outside Worcester is one of the leading UK ceramic showcases. The Gallery’s philosophy is to demonstrate and promote high level skills in contemporary studio ceramics, and to set work in the wider context of original prints and paintings. In the last two years the gallery has expanded to include The Original Prints Gallery which displays work across all printmaking disciplines by over thirty respected printmakers from around the country.
CIRCLE is a cool and elegant art gallery in Cornwall, showcasing emerging and well known artists. Circle’s distinct style is shaped by a tribe of artists and artisans who live and work in country and coastal places - in short, nature. CIRCLE are a principled gallery that show paintings, prints, photography, sculpture and fine crafts which are imbued with the integrity of the maker.
Hold Open the Door – A Commemorative Anthology from The Ireland Chair of Poetry
Hold Open The Door, published in December 2020, is an anthology of essays and poems by contemporary Irish poets reflecting on the formative value of mentorship and creative exchange. I am honoured to have been featured in an essay by Irish poet Kate Caoimhe Arthur as an inspiration for her work. In the contents my name follows that of Seamus Heaney, very illustrious company! I was also delighted that my print Ancient Circles was selected to feature on the dust cover of the anthology.

I was delighted to have been selected along with Rita Morton to be Cambridge's representative artists at the 30th anniversary of the twinning of Cambridge with the university city of Szeged in southern Hungary. The celebration took place in May 2017 in Szeged and included an exhibition of art at the Bridge Fair.
