Spring Flowers

Cow parsley, buttercups, daisies, bluebells and forget-me-nots, simple things can be so beautiful.

I am so looking forward to Summer it seems to have been a really long Winter, and even though it's Spring  I feel like we are still waiting for the warmer weather to start. I took these few photographs in a friends garden on the one beautiful day that we have had.

Sneak peek in the studio

I am at last having an exhibition of my paintings and I am really enjoying the challenge of creating a whole body of work, even though at the moment it seems to be turning me into a bit of a hermit. My exhibition will be in September which really isn't that far of when I only have two full days to paint, I think that housework may suffer a bit, what a shame!! Here's a sneak peek.

Gawthorpe Hall Textile Workshops

A friend of mine is currently working at Gawthorpe Hall textile collection and she has asked me to spread the word about the workshops they are running this year. On Friday 3rd of May there is  an embroidery exploration day where you can see a wide range of embroidered pieces from the collection which includes some wonderful examples of embroidered domestic textiles and small items of costume. They are also running Textile artist led events throughout the year, see all the workshops they are running this year here.
