I have been really honoured this year to be asked to be part of Art in Penallt. It used to be in a small chapel building in Penallt but now it has moved to 'Humble by Nature' where there is more exhibition space. 30th August - Sunday 1st September 2019, I'd like to say big big thank you to Art in Penallt and everyone who worked hard to make the weekend such a success.

One is my recent print of an Otter and the other is the acrylic painting of the hedgerow close to my house during the recent snowy weather. The Exhibition is launched on Friday 25th May and continues until 7th July 2018. It is always full of work of the highest standard and well worth a visit, either as part of the Open Studios weekend or if you are in t
