Christmas Open Studios (& new work!)


I have been working towards this event since moving in to my Krowji studio in Redruth. Last year i volunteered for this event helping the public navigate their way around and it feels great to be taking part this year! On the Friday evening there will also be mince pies and mulled wine in the melting pot cafe and the Ingleheart singers in the foyer, there will also be workshops to take part in and an elf trail with prizes for children.

I will be selling framed work, painted wood blocks, hand painted cards with envelopes and my small painted cotton reels from studio 216. My website is updated with my most recent pieces.

I have started putting up work on the walls and its looking good, Christmas lights/decor and nibbles will be in there too!


Keep Human, Charity art event


I was asked by my friend and fellow Krowji studio resident Claire Stockings-Baker to contribute to this event she and Faye Dobinson had decided to create.

“The project is simple: write down, in any size, shape and medium, and on any material, words that convey a value, the world would benefit from acting upon at this time”.

The idea was to raise money for refugees and support Cornish networks for the vulnerable and the homeless.

I was able to get a sneak peek at the contributions as the exhibition was happening in the same building i work in and i was amazed at how many pieces of work Claire and Faye had recieved.

The evening was great with many of my friends having contributed and enjoying the exhibition, my contribution along with many others had sold before i had arrived!

My contribution reads: Find yourself in new spaces, revel in the simple pleasure of wander and wonder…

Here are some images from the opening evening

I’ve been busy in my studio at Krowji getting ready for open studios in December but I have decided to open a shop on Etsy too!

My shop has a variety of mixed media paintings on wood, paper canvas and wooden cotton reels, framed and unframed work. I will be adding some textiles soon.

I’m still busy working in St Ives and i have an exhibition coming up soon too, so much is going on at the moment!

Krowji Studio

PicMonkey Collage

Last week i got my key to my new studio space at Krowji! I’ve gradually been moving stuff in and trying to make it my home away from home or should i say studio away from studio? Basically…I’ve moved out of the bedroom (yay) not that you can tell.

I still have a lot to do but the space is great and huge. I have signed up to do Christmas Open Studio’s so between now and then i will be busy making art to sell, more updates to follow soon!

Treriefe Design Fair


I will be exhibiting at Trereife Design Fair this year as part of Cornwall College (even though i have now left). I will be at the fair on Sunday all day if you are interested in chatting to me about my work.

I will be taking the work from my end of year show as well as my sketchbook and a few pieces i have worked on since leaving college. However i don’t not know which pieces will definitely make it on display as we are limited with space.

Here is some work i have done in my sketchbook today, remember to follow me on instagram to see other work in progress.

Painting For Sale; Affordable August


Penwith Society of Arts are holding Affordable August. I have donated a painting to the exhibition to help raise funds.

My painting (acrylic) for sale is called ‘The Warmth of The Day’. It is a square box canvas depicting a black and white landscape with subtle yellow. The surface is very textured as this canvas has been used for two other paintings before that i was never happy with. The painting also has a small extract from a book reading ‘the warmth of the day had gone’.

The composition and theme of this painting follows on from my degree work and final exhibition, my studies towards the end produced a lot of final work as well as a lot of scope for future development.

If you are interested in purchasing this painting please follow the link below to the gallery website.

This is a unique fundraising show, whereby all of our members have donated their work to the gallery so that all proceeds go towards both the preservation and regeneration of their historic and magnificent residence, the Penwith Gallery.

Studio Space

As part of my degree I applied for a residency at Krowji Studio’s, Redruth. It was run as a competition for my year group and im over the moon to say i will be moving into a space in Spetember for a year! Three of my other friends; Jo, Cat and Tina also won and I’m looking forward to the next journey with them- well done ladies!

This opportunity is fantastic, I am hoping to be involved with Open Studios in December and next year.

In the meantime I have updated my website with my work, applying for art competitions and getting involved with art fairs. I have also started working at the school of painting as an employee after having volunteered there for 2 years!

More updates coming soon!

Final Work- end of year show

I have been late sharing the end of year show as i have been busy taking my work straight to a second exhibition; the pop up shop in Camborne.

When i was given my empty exhibition space it felt huge and daunting, then i realised it wasnt big enough! However i was really happy with the display and the end of year show was great. I had some great feedback in person and by email.

My work was mixed media painting and textiles. My exhibition statement read:

My work is inspired by the quote ‘to make visual how the world touches us’ (Merleau-Ponty, 1993).

The connection I have with my surroundings is an important element in my interdisciplinary practice; in particular nature helps me to clarify my thoughts, having a calming and meditative effect on myself. This is then continued further in the process of making and interpreting my experiences.

Using melancholy, nostalgia, feelings and thoughts explored through places used as self-reflection and contemplation. I use the process of walking and being aware of and responding to my surroundings, recording my emotional response and observations.

In the studio I begin to translate these thoughts into my own aesthetic language using textiles, print, paint and stitch to develop 2D and 3D pieces of art.

Here is the work i can finally share, if you would like to know more you can email me or come into the pop up shop. More images of my work will be available on my website soon and exhibited at the Trereife Design fair in August!

Pop Up Art Shop, Camborne

University has finished and the end of year show/exhibition is over! A few of us have moved our final work to an empty shop in Trelowarren Street, Camborne. We are exhibiting for 2 weeks, 10-4pm.

Although we are mostly promoting the creative courses on offer by Cornwall College, the exhibition is being supervised by the students whose work is shown (including myself). This is a good chance to hear from the students what its like to study a creative course, the varying work produced and the experiences and opportunities available.
