TRAIL 2013

giant squid plastic bags - CopyThe inspiring Teignmouth recycled art in the landscape sculpture TRAIL 2013 is now installed along the sea front until 5th September, a great thing to visit with the kids at this beautiful south Devon coast town. Regulars will know that I have contributed pieces to this great annual event for a number of years now. This year I was inspired by the sight of a non-biodegradable carrier bag on the beach, and have crocheted old carrier bags into a giant squid, complete with a couple of old Barbie doll victims.

The Art of Colour

Seaside studyMy work is on show at Exeter Gloss Gallery as part of their summer exhibition – Devon Artist Network and the Art of Colour. The exhibition focuses on how artists use colour to capture the drama and beauty of Devon and Cornwall Landscapes, it features the work of over twenty artists to create a beautifully varied display. Until 24th August.

Thelma Hulbert Gallery

I am exhibiting alongside a number of designers in the annual present makers exhibition at the beautiful Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Honiton until 22nd December.

For the eighth consecutive year, the Thelma Hulbert Gallery offers visitor’s the chance to snap up some amazing designer maker gifts for friends, family – or just as a treat for themselves – in our annual ‘Present Makers’ designer maker showcase.

Present Makers 2012 provides the perfect opportunity to browse for refreshingly different gifts in the comfortable surroundings of Thelma Hulbert’s former home, a grade II listed Georgian villa in a leafy corner of Honiton town. With fresh filter coffee and biscuits constantly available in the THG refreshment room, Present Makers 2012 aims to take the drudgery out of the annual festive frenzy of gift shopping
