Three of my cats have found their way to Roger Billcliffe's famous gallery in Glasgow again - a black one, a tabby and a grey.
I am showing new work with Ingo Fincke Gallery at the Affordable Art Fair at Battersea Park. I will be there in person on Thursday between 6 and 9pm. Hope to meet you there!
I will be showing work at the following venues:
New Large Outdoor Gulls
Encounters Artspace - award-winning house with sculptural, architectural and installation work
Every weekend in May, at 12 Langdale Road, Hove BN3 4HN. Really interesting house, specialising in sculptural and architectural work.
Decorative ceramics for the home and dinner table
Teresa Winchester, 45 Preston Drove, Brighton BN1 6LA - our old favourite in Fiveways with lovely garden and great cakes (and free parking!)
Milton House, 281 Dyke Road, Hove BN3 6PD - this house is run by Sarah and Adam Jones in their exceptionally beautiful Art Noveau House
Architectural Plants is a magical long-established Nursery in Pulborough, West Sussex. They sell just what is on the ticket - plants that stand out through their architectural and sculptural qualities. They have just moved to a new site and are branching out to show (and sell!) sculpture as well. I am very happy and excited to have my work there, especially as I have known the is nursery from the very beginning, when I was still gardening in Brighton.
I am planning to visit on Saturday, so more photos are sure to follow!
This year’s Festival is special for me because my gulls are on the cover of the brochure for the Open Houses and on lots of posters too! I will be showing my work in the following venues:

The piece for Encounters AOH is a about memories of living on Kemptown seafront. It will feature architectural and other detail of the street scene there. I will be making a large sphere – similar to the ones shown in my previous work. It will be covered in pure white hand-cut porcelain mosaic, with the grout lines taking centre stage, forming the design as a line drawing. The mosaic tiles are the ‘space inbetween’. This is reversal from conventional tiling and mosaic work, where the grout acts merely as a filler. It is also the first piece for me without colour. I wanted to strip away everything that I normally work with, and celebrate the elements of grout and bare tile that I tend to take for granted.
I will be posting pictures of the work in progress here
