news update...

Well, apologies first for not keeping my blog as up-to-date as I ought! Its been an extraordinarily busy last month or two

So in no particular this is what has been happening recently....

Firstly, and most excitingly, I had a great time at the HD-Expo trade show in Las Vegas back in May. I was one of seven creative business exhibiting on the International Business Wales stand, and the response to my work from visitors was fantastic. Many thanks to all the visitors who came to find me!

Just after I got back from Vegas I had to go to London for the press launch for the Wesley Barrell Craft Award that I have been short-listed for. I had the opportunity to meet the judges, which included Jon Snow, Celia Birtwell and Kara O'Reilly amongst others. Kara very kindly gave me a mention that following weekend in The Sunday Times The award will be announced at Origin in October..... keep your fingers crossed for me!

I have also recently been photographed in my studio by the legendary photographer Martin Parr for a forthcoming Cardiff feature in The Guardian - will keep you posted as to when that gets published.

On Sunday, I was delighted to be awarded the Applied Artist category award in the Welsh Artist of the Year competition.

On Monday I installed the Karen Davies memorial artwork commission for Milford Haven School.... photo's to follow.

Will post again very soon about my forthcoming exhibitions..... there is lots coming up!
