Hot Bed Press Printmakers’ Studio is celebrating its 20th birthday with an exhibition at Warrington Museum and Art Gallery.  ’20′ will feature the work of twenty artists and I am delighted to have been selected to exhibit. It will run from 14th June until 6th September.  To coincide with the exhibition, the Museum will host a five-week school of print demonstrating a range of printmaking techniques.


Delighted that I have had two etchings selected for the Waterside Open Exhibition in Sale, Manchester. View From Seilebost and Highland Bothy will both be on display and are for sale at £145 each, in handmade natural walnut frames.


The exhibition runs from Saturday 8th February to Saturday 24th May so there’s plenty of time to head along and see an amazing variety of work from artists, designers and makers in the North West and across the UK.

Had a great day at the Little Northern Contemporary Craft Fair in Altrincham yesterday. A massive thanks to everyone who bought an etching – it’s great to know they have all went to good homes!

It was a wonderful opportunity to meet lots of lovely people – exhibitors and visitors – and get that warm Christmassy feeling. There was some fantastic work on show including that of my friendly neighbouring stallholders – Louise Janetta from Buxton, who had beautiful collagraphs on show and Eve Redmond – selling elegant jewellery in silver and agate. The lovely Stella Corrall from Lucentia was also at the fair exhibiting her range of gorgeous bespoke coasters made with translucent plastics.

Arrived back home after the show to wade through a sea of printmaking detritus so the next few days will be dedicated to creating some semblance of order. It’s amazing how much mess one frenzied printmaker can create…


I’ll be exhibiting a range of etchings and other limited edition prints at the Little Northern Contemporary Craft Fair on Sunday December 8th. There are over 40 designers, makers and artists selling lovely handmade items so it’s the perfect opportunity to get some unique gifts for Christmas (or treat yourself!).
