In June 2017 I was lucky to be one of a small group of people taken on a guided walk in a restricted zone on Dartmoor to get up close to the blanket bogs and have the ecology of the mires explained by a Dartmoor National Park Ranger and a bog expert from the Devon Wildlife Trust (DWT). The walk was organised by The Devon Guild of Craftsmen, who subsequently arranged a “Magnificent Mires/Beautiful Blanket Bogs” themed display at the Waterside Mill at Bovey Tracey.
Since perparing to move house and actually moving house last year I have not been updating my website as much as I would have liked. BUT I have been sending out my occassional newsletter to keep people up todate with my projects and other activities. If you are not in receipt of my newsletter but would like to there is a signing up button to you left. Or click here

Every now and then people from various parts of the world get in touch to ask q few questions about my artwork or with technical questions. I do my best to answer – even though writing really isn’t my thing. Oddly – this month has been little crazy with questions every couple of days. So when a student from Barbados asked me nicely is I could answer some questions for a school based assignment. I said that seeing as she asked so nicely, I would. I was a little taken aback to get 14 quite chalenging questions – but in answering them the exercise was helpful in making me think.
I love open studio events.
For Exeter Open Studios 2013, my studio is venue 25 at 46 Heavitree Road, Exeter, EX1 2LQ.
I’m open for Friday 22nd, Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March – 11am to 6pm. There are a couple of special items that are only available during open studio events. I would love it if you could come during Exeter Open Studios which is happening in March for the very first time. But do remember that studio visits can be arranged at other times if you can’t make it this time.
It undeniably a lot of work knocking my studio into shape, but I think it’s worth it. Take a look here for a fun VIDEO!
