Exhibitions Coming Up…

Where to find me…

I have a raft of art events booked in between now and Xmas all over Canterbury. 

Like everyone else, Covid is impacting what I can and can not do.
These events are on again – off again, postponed and cancelled on an almost weekly basis so I have been hesitating before sending out information on where I am exhibiting.

​Today I decided to send out what I have confirmed at this time.
I’ll keep my website up to date so do check out the About Page, scroll down and you’ll see a list of the events I am currently booked in for.

If you are out and about over the next few months, you might like to check out some of these art events.

You’ll find my work there, alongside other amazing artists, and for some events
I will be there in person as well.

I love this time of year!The birds have been busy and their young are fledging. Fledglings are curious and not very not "street-smart" so we often get closer to them than their parents. They tend to sit and check us out checking them out. Freshly Fledged Fantail...
