Upcoming Show in Lewes

I am very pleased to announce a new joint show! It's at the Stable Gallery, part of Paddock Studios in Lewes from 15th to 20th August 2014.
Marcus Ripley and I both scour the landscape for treasures through which to open people's eyes to the deep Sussex and Devon past and its wealth of habitats. Everything in the show has been created from bones, wood and natural finds. Once assembled our sculptures evoke an ancient resonance with the landscapes and the people who lived and farmed there. They have echoes of iconography and more traditional folk art .
Opening times are on the poster below (full size download here).


Lewes Arts Meet Up

I was asked by Lewes Arts to present one of the first talks of the year. For those of you who attended or anyone else who is interested, you can download the notes I used for reference. The themes for the talk were Myths and Legends in Sussex, Magic and its links to Art.


Spring Cleaning

2013 was a very busy year so I feel it is time for change. Welcome to my updated pages. You can still reach my previous scribblings in the archive, but now it is time for something fresh.
I am looking at dolls in a new light, and I think 2014 will be quite unusual!

The Year Of The Ash

Our ash trees are being attacked by Chalara Fraxinea (Ash dieback). Some trees are fighting back; this year I shall be planting ash seeds and trees as this is a very special tree both in folklore and to the variety of insects to which it is a home.
