Cream of Coastal Currents 2019

I’ll be showing solo here in my studio this year so there will be plenty of space to spread and show you lots of new work. There will also be older pieces and seconds at bargain prices as well as demonstrations of work in progress.

Here’s my pick of the rest of the programme for this year…

Coastal currents 2018: my pick of the events & exhibitions

Coastal Currents is the massive arts festival for Hastings & St Leonards. I will again be opening my studio as part of the festival but I thought you might also like to see some of the many many other things that are happening to whet your appetite!

There's also an intriguing series of installations by Shopkeepers of the World exploring the idea of the charity shop as the archive of the community. The completed works are on display in a range of shops in Bexhill & St Leonards. Details on p53 of the printed programme, but I haven't managed to find them on the website so we may have to just go for a wander and see what we find!

Pick of Coastal Currents Arts Festival 2017

Coastal Currents is Hastings' own arts festival. I saw a little bit of it last year but am excited to see more - and to participate - this year.

The festival has a big open studios strand, and my space will be open for the weekends of 2/3 & 9/10 Sept from 11-6. Guest artist Jemma Wyllie will be joining me to show her work too.

In the run-up to the festival here's my personal selection of things to look out for.
