  1. I so enjoyed hosting a week of workshops at the lovely Retreat to the Farm in France surrounded by inspiration with plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings, relax, paint and drink wine - the perfect holiday combination for participants!

  2. Abstract Edge exhibition.

    I will be there at the preview/ opening on Sat 20 th May but also I am stewarding the exhibition on Sunday 21 st May 2 pm until 5 pm and it would be good if you can  come along on either of those dates to keep me company!

    Art Retreat

    My tickets are booked and equipment and materials have been sent ahead,so here's what we will be getting up to at the Art Retreat in the Loire from 3 rd June.

    1) "Painted Patchwork"

    A workshop that explores and compares the effects that can be achieved with watercolour and Acrylic paints.

    2) "Making your Mark"

    We are going on a treasure hunt!- foraging for materials to make our own paintbrushes and tools.

    3)"From a Distance"

    Techniques for abstraction- how to respond and take inspiration from ALL your senses.

    4)"Making an Impression"

    Ideas and techniques for mono- print transfer 5)"Rip it up and start again"

    Collage and combined techniques.Make your paintings full of variety and surprise yourself!

    There are still a couple of places available for the week at www.retreattothefarm.co.uk and you could always book to  "drop- in" for just one workshop ( day rate can be negotiated) if you are going to be in the area that week?

    But ,anyone who's not going to make it to France this summer- don't despair! I will be teaching these workshops at a number of venues in the U.K. for the rest of this year.

    Stay tuned for details and confirmed dates- I will send to everyone on my mailing list very soon!

  3. Severn Hospice are hosting an exhibition and celebration of the very talented Judith Moy who died last year. I  exhibited and sold several of Judith's paintings in my gallery and have a couple in my own personal collection. She was a much admired and very special artist who will be greatly missed.

    Event Information

    12:00 and 3:00pm on Saturday 1st April at the Alington Hall, Shrewsbury School as we celebrate the work of Shropshire-based artist, Judith Moy.

     This unique event gives you the opportunity to view and purchase Judith's art, sketchbooks and materials; and learn more about the special lady behind the pictures.

     As was Judith's wish, all money raised from the sale will be donated to Severn Hospice. There is no charge to join us but we'd welcome your kind donations on admission.

     You are welcome to join us anytime between 12:00 and 3:00pm to view Judith's work. At 12:30pm Wilfred Langford, Chairman of the Shropshire Art Society where Judith was an active member, will introduce her work and give an insight into her life as an artist.
