March 16th and 17th - Artist and Designer Fair, Buxton

5th and 6th May - Belper Arts Trail. This year I will be at Ada Bellfield on Derwent Street.

17 - 19th May, 10am - 4pm - Arts At The Folly at The Folly, Main Road, Lea DE4 5GJ, we can be found opposite the Coach House. This is my favourite show of the year. It takes place at my house and this year we have a line up of at least six fabulous artists who will be present to chat about their work. This is always a much loved and very friendly event with lots of cake consumed by everyone (and yes, we do offer GF and vegan cakes too). Judging by last year I would recommend arriving either fairly early or slightly later in the day as it was super busy over lunchtime. We are located very close to the popular Lea Gardens which will be in full bloom in May, so why not make a day of it! Tell everyone and bring a friend!

I always enjoy exhibiting at Belper Arts Trail. This year I will be at Clarkes, 32 King Street, which looks to be a fab venue. And I do know that there will be plenty of other things going on in Belper too, including lots of music - it will be the place to be over the bank holiday weekend!

Arts at The Folly is back!

It is held at my house in Lea, Derbyshire and all of my artwork will be on display along with work by Kate Beinder, Jenny Neale Images and more.

I am a member of The Wildlife Art Society International and will have four pieces of work hanging at their Annual Exhibition at Nature in Art in Glocestershire.

The exhibition will have a wide variety of wildlife art on show from many talented artists both from the UK and further afield.

I am really pleased with the entries I am submitting this year and hope that people can go along and support this fabulous exhibition.

This will be my first time exhibiting at Chatsworth and I am really looking forward to it. I will have a large selection of maps with me along with plenty of gift items ranging from hand painted boxes to tea towels and calendars. This will be the first time that some of these items will have gone on display so will be the perfect chance to get in early before they all disappear! Tickets can be purchased here.

Art In The Gardens, Sheffield

2nd - 3rd September

Tiger Cub Water Baby Pastels WRP FB.jpg

This will be my first time exhibiting at Art in the Gardens and I am really looking forward to it. As it clashes with the show at Chatsworth I may not personally be present the full time, but one of my lovely helpers will be to chat to you about my work :) I will be taking a large selection of original artwork and prints. This will be the perfect chance to be one of the first people to see my newest tiger in oils! Tickets can be purchased here.

Festival of Bird Art, Bakewell

9th - 10th September

Gannets Framed FB.jpg

I have exhibited with the BDWCA in the past - it is a lovely friendly show with some amazing carved birds on show and for sale, worth a visit just to see them! I will be bringing a good selection of maps with me along with my new painted wooden boxes, arty tea towels and of course some bird art!

Derbyshire Woodland Festival

16th - 17th September

Ram Derby Sheet 121 1962.JPG

Another new show for me, and one that I am very much looking forward to! This is held at Elvaston Castle Country Park and I have heard so many good things about it so I am delighted to be attending this year. What I take with me might well depend on the weather as I will only have a gazebo for shelter! Expect maps, painted boxes and much more. This one will be FUN!

Festival of Wood, Bakewell

8th October

Crafts In The Pen, Skipton

17th and 18th November

Bunny Skipton sheet 95 1953 framed.jpg

Definitely one of my favourite shows and probably my last show of 2023, this is one NOT to be missed. There is always an amazing display of work here, you have to see it to believe it. And I will be there with maps, animal artwork and so much more.
