I’m please to announce that four of my artworks have been selected for the Food for All exhibition at Kingshill House in Dursley, Gloucestershire.
The exhibition is on from the Wednesday 26 October 2022 – Tuesday 28 February 2023.
Food is an important part of culture and traditional cuisine is passed down from one generation to the next. Food tells us who we are, and where we’ve come from. It is what defines us, builds, and creates happy memories.
Given that ‘Black, Grey & Yellow’ is the exhibition’s colour theme, the first thing that popped into my head was a Manchester worker bee, and because I wanted a slightly industrial and aged look to the work, I chose to stitch into eco printed cloth.
I usually stitch in red thread, so this was a challenge for me. I liked the result so much that I created two companion pieces called Sound of the Mill #1 & #2. Each piece features Lancashire dialect poetry from ‘The Cotton Mill’ poem first published in The Bolton Chronicle in 1864.

Following this exhibition, the artworks are travelling to a gallery in Switzerland.
I’m pleased to announce that Time for Tea will be on exhibition at Leeds Summer Group Show 2022. The mixed-media exhibition takes place at The Leeds Playhouse, Leeds, West Yorkshire, Monday 1-30th June 2022.
The 2022 Leeds Summer Group Show will be a physical exhibition once again! This year it is presented in association with Leeds Playhouse and will be shown in their newly refurbished building for the month of June. The open call out for artists has now closed. From 198 submissions the selection panel chose 45 artists to take part.
