I will be one of 100 artists and makers exhibiting their work for York Open Studios this April. My second year in the YOS scheme but exhibiting from my own home for the first time. My work is predominantly mixed media response to landscape. Also pleased ceramicist Carolyn Thorpe will be showing her raku pots here.

One of the highlights of the recent York Literature festival was hearing Rosie Bailey introduce a posthumous collection of U A Fanthorpe’s prose and poetry about her experience of working as a clerk/ receptionist in the outpatients department of a hospital near Bristol in 1974, the experience which pushed her into poetry. Do look out for Berowne’s Book published by Enitharmon Press.

I did follow up the course led by Ed Kluz at Sleningford by producing am image of a visit to one of the Summer Isles. I worked from a photograph I’d taken to design this, using papers produced in the workshop and from recycled prints.
