Herbert Gallery News

Hello, I'm still here amongst my piles of threads, using them to sketch and paint my own personal memories and observations of nature.
It's less than three months until my exhibition " Seas Of Grass" opens at The Herbert Art Gallery in Coventry.
The Herbert have asked if I would do a talk about my work during the exhibition in December as well as a two day work shop in January which will include creative sketch book work and of course stitching.
When I get more details I will let you know.
If you check out the Herbert Art Gallery website you will notice that there are many other interesting exhibitions coming up, including Turner prize nominee George Shaw, who's childhood memories of urban landscapes, featuring housing estates, bike sheds and playing fields are painted with model making Humbrol enamel paint.

Hi I have just come across your blog today and love your work. I live in Warwickshire too and was a teaching assistant before the school I worked in was closed down. I shall be looking out for your exhibition and classes at the Herbert Gallery.
