Late Summer Newsletter

Upcoming Autumn Exhibitions

So Summer is beginning to fade but lets hope for some last minute September sunshine to take us through to Autumn!
I have been very busy this month getting work together for 2 exhibitions as well working on commissions and other projects...

The next event is

The Big Colyton Art Show at Colyton Grammar School
12th - 14th October


This event is only on every 2 years so I am very excited to be taking part. Visit their website for all the information you might need. Its a great event with lots of great work for sale.

Later on In November, I'm taking part in a group show of artists represented by 'Creative Coverage' who promote artists. When they told me where it was, I nearly fell over... Its at The Theatre, Chipping Norton, where I grew up! I used to go to the Sunday lunchtime live Jazz sessions with my Dad and inhaled goodness knows how much smoke while people sat about drinking beer, nodding their heads and smoking. Hessian wallpaper and 1970's splendour.
It is now a very nice looking gallery and I am excited to be exhibiting there from

13th November to 14th January
The Theatre, Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire

"Creative Coverage present a selection of work by artists from Oxfordshire and beyond. From sculpture to oil painting, this exhibition really has something for everyone. Why not pop in before panto to pick the perfect Christmas gift? Or treat your home to a new piece of art for the New Year?"

I will no doubt be showing my work closer to home at the Town Mill, Lyme Regis and may be having a studio sale closer to December. Details to follow....

Follow me on Instagram if you are into that sort of thing...

Talk about busy....

It's been non stop painting, framing, getting business things done; new logo, Shopify store, Mailchimp, Mailing lists, Line sheets, Terms and Conditions....the list is endless but I have learnt SO much this past month.

I have new paintings on the go as are a few of the new ones.

Lots of tasty other new work is available in the SHOP

New Online sales coming soon!

I am in the process of setting up a section within 'BUY' on my website where you can buy small paintings from me directly. The shipping has been figured out, the products photographed and I'm currently adding them to the site which will be visible and active by March 1st, if not sooner.

Theres more to it than I realised and I expect there will be teething problems but maybe not!

I may need a 'guinea pig' to trial it for me ( for a discounted price, of course ) let me know if you are interested!

Here is how it should look.....
