The room soon filled and there was an excellent turnout.  It was a friendly, happy, seasonal atmosphere on the night of the Frome Christmas lantern parade.

‘Types of Abstract’

I am delighted that ‘Kingfisher 2’ has been selected by Art Number 23 for their London Exhibition ‘Types of Abstract’.

The private view and party on Friday 20 July was well attended and great fun.

‘Kingfisher 2’ is a study capturing the moment when the swift movements of the Kingfisher emerge from the shadows of the tree canopy. An unexpected explosion of colour, movement and line – a memory of flashes of delightful, intense colour.  An encaptured moment.

The exhibition continues until 14 August 2018.

Inspired by many visits to Barbara Hepworth’s Sculpture Garden in St Ives; Henry Moore, Picasso and Anthony Gormley – I am using the needlepunch to create a series of wall panels based on ‘Curves’, building layers of texture and colour and  working from both sides of the textile.
