September News......

Hi Friends,

News and reminders....

The main BIGGIE is Herefordshire Art Week open studios 6-14th Sept, my studio will be open for the week 11am - 5pm i'm exhibiting with my mate Jeanette McCulloch we called our show  'Small Things Bright and Beautiful' studio is very small so we have limited the size of our exhibits.
