'Don't Forget To Breathe' Launch Party

The Foundry Gallery, North Street, Lewes  Artemis-Arts
Show continues until 8 September 2013.

Finally after months of planning and making work, the show is up and open.  We had a lovely welcome opening by the Mayor of Lewes, Ruth O'Keeffe, and a wonderful opening speech by Art Historian Marcia Pointon.  The event was really well attended, and we have received some wonderful comments. I especially like the one that says 'It's the Tate Modern in Lewes'  - thank you to everyone who made it along. The show continues until 8 September.

The expansion I feel during the hot weather, as the warmth relaxes my muscles and soothes my bones is both soothing and invigorating. Working on a large scale feels wonderful, to reach and stretch and to work on the ground outside. May this glorious summer go on and on...

Puglia Love

Over mid summer I spent some time in Puglia, Italy. It has since become one of my favourite places, so much did I love it there, I'm now learning Italian and taking inspiration from my photographs and memories to create a new series of paintings for my next exhibition later this month.

The exhibition is called 'Don't Forget To Breathe'. It is a joint show with Emily Ball and Jenny Shaw at The Foundry Gallery, Lewes. It is on during Artwave in Lewes - 24 Aug - 8 Sept.  My paintings are large scale and vibrant, reflecting the warmth of Italy, the vibrant richness of the earth and abundance of such wonderful architecture and food.
