Snaps of Saltaire

Saltaire in the spring sunshine was an amazing place to be. The Saltaire Arts Trail draws in huge numbers but even with out that there's a lot to see.  The Salts Mill that stands as the centrepiece of Saltaire houses a David Hockney gallery, designer home ware shop, huge book shop and an inspiring art shop.  There's a canal with boat trips, beautiful parklands, vintage stores and independent shops.  Well worth a visit.

Brave Girl

At the Saltaire Arts Trail I had the pleasure of sharing my exhibition space with the lovely Hannah Nunn. I really enjoyed her company, and as happens at these events, you spend a few days getting to know your fellow exhibitors and I came home feeling I'd made a new friend.  So, as a fellow blogger, I've spent my week stalking Hannah!  Hannah makes beautiful lamps and shades and runs a shop called Radiance in Hebden Bridge selling a great selection of lighting.  I particularly love the tea light lanterns of Kate Lycett whose work I also discovered at Saltaire.

So, via Hannah I have discovered the Brave Girls Club.  If ever there was a week I needed to be introduced to such a phenomenon it was this one.  I've needed to be brave to deal with a few too many of life's downs over the last couple of weeks and to receive their daily truth has given me strength. Not one to rest on my laurels, I seized the moment and submitted an image and today I am their 'Birdie artist of the day'.  Hello Brave Girls of the world!

It's arrived!

As an avid reader of Country Living Magazine for I don't know how many years, I am soooo excited to have my work featured on the Emporium pages!  My 'home' print is from an edition of 250 and each is stitched by me making each unique and maintaining some of the texture of the original. 

It's been a busy few weeks updating the website to include a shop section.  You can now buy all my prints, cards and ceramics here.
