A Group Gathering

 I am delighted to announce I will be one of the artists participating in a Group Gathering 2015: Daphne's Glove. This week I received my little parcel and by next April I will have to produce a piece of work using it which will be exhibited alongside the work of the other artists. I have done a lot of work with gloves before so I think I will find it quite hard to find a new approach but it is an exciting challenge.

Folk Art Flowers USA style

I am back in the UK now after having a fantastic experience teaching for French General in LA followed by a two week road trip up the Pacific coast to Mendocino. Here are some pictures so you can see what went on. I am afraid I can't include every student's work so the choice is more dependent on the quality of my photography than anything else. In this country both Folk Art Flowers courses advertised on my web site had been fully booked but due to a change of circumstances I can now offer two more places on the Folk Art Flower course at Horsley on Saturday 8th November. Please contact me HERE if you are interested in taking up a place.

Next week I shall be off to Los Angeles to teach for French General. Here is a sample I am taking which combines a bit of  an old unpicked British utility quilt and some French General fabric flowers.
