I'm delighted to say I have three pieces of work in the latest Edge Textile Artist Scotland Exhibition at Verdant Works Dundee. Exhibition runs until 23 April so there's plenty of time to see it if you're up that way.
Bags for Life - Jute, Gesso, Stitch
Taking part in the Fruitmarket Gallery Edinburgh's annual Artist Book Market next weekend along with other members of the Artist Book Group. Always a fun event with an eclectic mix of artist books, talks and workshops. Open on Saturday and Sunday from 11.00 - 5.00 pm.

Anyone in Orkney over the next couple of weeks? Lynda and I would love to see you at our exhibition in Stromness. I'm travelling up tomorrow and taking the evening ferry. Looking forward to setting it all up and meeting new people. Also teaching a bookmaking class on Sunday afternoon. Limited numbers, but there are still some spaces at the moment.
Something went mysteriously wrong here so starting again. I'll be having an exhibition at the Northlight Gallery in Stromness, Orkney 3-14 September 2016. Sharing the space with Lynda Wilson, also a member of The Artist Book Group. We will be showing an eclectic mix of new paintings, prints, mixed media textiles and artist books. Lynda and I will each run an artist bookmaking workshop, mine will be a sewn notebook and will 'happen' on Sunday 4 June, Lynda's to follow a week later. Watch this space for more information about the workshops. In the meantime email me if you're interested, cost is £10 payable in advance and all materials will be provided.
