 My window installation at Whitknits was runner up  for the best dressed window at the Whitstable Oyster Festival 2014.
 Hope you can make it down over the next two weeks as there are some wonderful events including the outdoor cinema on Tankerton slopes.

How the piece developed:

It started with a conversation at my "Knitting Jam" during the Whitstable Biennale in May
It then developed over time.......

and I added other elements
Like the fishing net from the Oyster Festival 2012 which was part of my commissioned installation Titled "Gaucho Sunset".
As well as my Garden Picture made in 2010 using woven fishing line I found on the beaches in Whitstable and in Chile.
Final Piece 

Also a brief mention of Pintar Rapido 2014
 "Chelsea Rooftops from the Cafe at Peter Jones" 2014 mixed media on paper, 84 x 63 cm, framed

Can't believe that  this time last week I was painting in the cafe at Peter Jones for Pintar Rapido 2014. Many thanks to the manager at Peter Jones who was so helpful and also Roger Beckett of Pintar Rapido with his wonderful team of volunteers.

 Am delighted to have been contacted by the Chelsea Framers gallery on the Kings Road to take part in their "Telling the Story", plein air event in September. Looking forward to it!

Busy time. So, I thought I'd better post news about the events/exhibitions I will be taking part in from July to August.
Today is the last day of the Creek Creative summer show in Faversham where one of the paintings I have been exhibiting is "Tankerton View" 50 x 50 cm.

I have been drawing and making studies for Pintar Rapido which takes place on July 19th and ends with an exhibition at Chelsea Town Hall on July 20th. Pintar Rapido is painting in a day in Kensington and Chelsea.  There are over 400 artists from all over the world taking part. I took part last year and it was a geat event. You can visit the show at Chelsea Town Hall on the Sunday or come and have a wander on Saturday, there are artists painting in various locations, you can't miss them. I think I will be in the restaurant area at Peter Jones ( where else!!). 

If you would like  an invite for the Sunday exhibition please let me know. For more about Pintar Rapidohttp://www.pintarrapido.com/london/index.html

I have also been working on an exciting project for the Whitstable Oyster Festival and will be posting more news about that nearer the time. In the meantime hope some of you will make it to Whitstable. The festival starts on July 26th. Let me know if you are coming....
