I am lucky enough to be demonstrating again this year in the textiles marquee at Art in Action, the largest and best visual arts fest in the uk. Not just the arts but music, performance, lectures, amazing food tents and so on are there, making it a not-to be-missed event.  The dates this year are July 16th-19th at Waterperry House, nr Wheatley, Oxford. http//:www.artinaction.co.uk

This year the other textile demonstrators include Wendy Dolan, Roanna Wells, and Diana Springall, who is showing part off her wonderful embroidery collection. I’m honoured to have work in it as well. My piece in the collection is based on my visits to Spain and dates from 2008

Artists have also been invited to contemplate the theme Life’s Journey, and I’ve responded to this. Here is my piece which I’ve called “Towards the Horizon” 35cm x45cm approx plus framing. I’ve tried to put together aspects of the landscapes that have influenced me, with copper bands that take the eye through the fields to the horizon beyond.
