2018 was a challenging year, with a major solo exhibition and numerous group exhibitions. I took part in both the Liverpool and Manchester Artists Book Fair, and the highly successful North Wales Print Fair ant the Mostyn Gallery.
My artists books continue to prove very popular, and in 2019 I plan to develop these, in various formats, using my own printmaking, handmade paper and handpainted hosho paper.
I also plan to extend my use of saline sulphate etching techniques, which are a major interest.
No doubt there will be a further series of collagraphs, as the Concrete Coast series has reached a natural conclusion.
Outline Art, one of several professional groups to which I belong, has an exhibition at Jobling Gowler in Macclesfield. The venue, a very supportive and enthusiastic firm of solicitors and therapists, has been a wonderful place to exhibit and sell work, over a number of years.
I am taking part in the first North Wales Contemporary Craft Fair at Mostyn Gallery, Llandudno, on Saturday 9th March, and look forward to meeting customers old and new at this new event.
I am teaching several workshops for specific art and craft groups throughout the year and am available for tailor made workshops to suit our group.
