an ending and a beginning

What with moving house four days before Christmas and then being ill for a few days (the previous few manic weeks finally catching up with me) the final days of the year have all gone by in a bit of a blurry fog.  

Thank you so much for visiting my pages over the last year.  I've often been overwhelmed by people's lovely comments and support and amazed that so many people are interested in what I have to show for my time (can't quite believe it really).  Special thanks to recent mentions by Carolyn and Trace.  It really is lovely to find that there are people from far corners of the earth who have alighted on my little patch and enjoy coming back again.

Wishing all a happy and peaceful new year and looking forward to whatever adventures 2012 may bring,

the mall gallery

I will be exhibiting in Designer Crafts at The Mall Galleries, London from 6th - 15th January.

If you're going to be in London on the 6th January and would like an invitation to the private view that evening send me an email this week and I'll pop one in the post to you.

6 inch cube

On Saturday I went to South Square in Thornton to see 6 inch cube.  

I have three pieces in this varied little exhibition, where all artworks fit within the dimensions of a six inch cube.  

I will be exhibiting in this space on my own next year so it was good to see the gallery in action, and be entertained by some of the more surprising artworks... Heidi Harding's cube and (in one of the other galleries) Claire Harbottle's Nailing Jelly were particularly enjoyable!

There is a lovely veggie cafe at South Square alongside the three gallery spaces, studios and shops.

I have some work in this exhibition of small prints in Hull.  I'm hoping to get over there at some point soon to see it.  It looks like there is a lovely mix of different print techniques.  

The work I submitted are rust prints with tea on paper, which have been stitched into with small seed stitches

The exhibition is on until 21st January.
