Looking at better times ahead

2021 didn’t get off to a great start with the whole country in lockdown and gripped by the terrible consequences of the Covid 19 virus. Thankfully, things are starting to look a little more hopeful and we are all cautiously starting to allow ourselves to hope that things can reopen soon and that some level of normality can be realised in our lives again.

Personally, I am particularly looking forward to participating in some of my regular shows like the annual Bucks Art Weeks exhibition at Obsidian Art during June as well as some new ventures. I was really pleased and proud to have been asked to be the featured artist at last year’s Wooburn festival in early October. Sadly, like everything else in 2020 it had to be cancelled but I am hopeful that the festival might be able to go ahead this year. It is a great opportunity for me and it will be fantastic to be able to showcase my work to a new audience.

I am still thrilled to be part of the Buckinghamshire Craft Guild and still regularly demonstrate at the guild (see diary section for details). If you haven’t visited yet it is a lovely gallery space filled with high quality, beautiful work by over 30 local Buckinghamshire based artists. This year we are already planning several special exhibitions, kicking off with our reopening exhibition called FRESH; from the makers. It will feature some lovely new work from our membership including 5 new members whose work we are excited to share with you.

More details about all these things to come. Keep checking back if you’re interested to know more.
