An amazing evening with the antique expert Kate Bliss, a Poetry in Art Auction at the Trumpet Corner Tearoom and Gallery in aide of St Michael's Hospice. My donation, a plate with wild chervil, sold for a good amount. Happy!



What a fantastic Sunday in Ledbury, a day to celebrate music, poetry, lovely local food and drinks and the weather was great! I was there with the Trumpet Corner Tearoom and Gallery to represent local artists and designer makers. What an exciting day!

Malvern Spring Festival 2017

I was asked by the organisers of the Malvern Spring Festival to dress two shop windows, in Victorian style, located in the Flower Marquee, by the entrance of the Victorian Plant Finder's Parlour. One was around ferns and the other was themed on auricula theatre.

The show seems like a distant event now but it has given me a lot of joy, it was an opportunity for me to meet with exciting, full of enthusiasm, people and it has brought plenty of visitors whose feedback I have been enjoying, still today.

New exhibition

Please come to see our Garden Gallery exhibition starting on Saturday 18th March and ending on Thursday 27th April. It is aptly called 'Nature' to celebrate the welcome arrival of Spring and it will be showcasing the wonderful work of Claire Billingsley ceramic artist, Claire Vaughan Designs who celebrates all things botanical, glass artist Mariana Pavlova from Hollybush Studios and Claudia Petley & Paul Shepherd from Metalsmiths. It's set to be a great collaboration - do be sure to visit and see our latest work. You can also pop into the tearoom for lunch or a snack!


Back to the studio soon

Dear friends, as the relaxing time of the Christmas holiday becomes a distant memory and the long nights start stepping back, allowing the daylight to take over, I am working again on new designs and planning new projects. 

My next post will have information on what I'm up to this coming spring. Please keep following and many thanks!
