Bastet I - colour pencil on paper
I shall be exhibiting at the 8th annual Reading Contemporary Art Fair (22-23 April 2017, Rivermead Leisure Complex, Reading RG1 8EQ). This is one of the friendliest art fairs in the calendar – a great place to meet painters, sculptors, ceramicists and photographers, and explore all aspects of contemporary art. I shall be showcasing new pieces, including Bastet I (pictured) and am always happy to talk about work and technique. Look forward to seeing you there. :)
