I have just completed two new screen print editions, Clear Moment I and II. These have been hand printed by myself at my studio in Cambridge. They each have 13 colours printed, with two overprinted gloss colours, in an edition of 80. For images of them, please go to Prints.
The recent Flying Kites auction raised a fantastic four thousand pounds. Thank you to everyone who supported this event. For further news on the project please go to www.flyingkitesglobal.org
On the 24 October there will be an auction at Anstey Hall, Trumpington, Cambridge, to raise funds for the charity Flying Kites, I have donated the print, Equating I, to the auction.

On the 14th June, I took part in the Race For Life charity running event, running with the staff from Cambridge Contemporary Art.
We had hoped to raise £3,000 for Cancer Research UK, but had so much support that we exceeded our target.
Thank you to everyone who so generously sponsored us!
May 2009Thank you to everyone who bought raffle tickets for the Charity Raffle that took place in memory of my aunt, Rosemary Halman, at the opening of 'Joining The Dance' at Cambridge Contemporary Art. Having sold 300 tickets, the raffle for 'Treasured I' raised an amazing total of £1,500 for Cancer Research UK. It was particularly special that the painting was won by my other aunt, Stell, Rosemary's eldest sister.
On 14 June, I will be taking part in the Race For Life, 5K running event in Cambridge, together with the staff from Cambridge Contemporary Art, to raise more money for Cancer Research UK. If you would like to sponsor us, please go to the following link,
During the next couple of months, I will be working on two new screen print editions. I will be hand printing these new editions at my studio. Images and details will be put onto the Prints page as soon as the new editions are completed.
From the 16 May until 19 June some of my prints will be included in the exhibition 'Underexposed: Female artists and the medium of print', at the University of Kent, Canterbury. I feel privileged to have been selected to be part of this exhibition which includes prominent women artists who have used the medium of print during the 20th and 21st centuries. For the list of exhibiting artists, please click on poster.
Over the past few months I have been working on a series of new monoprints at my studio. After initially monoprinting the backgrounds on my screen printing table, I then stretch the paper onto large boards which allows me to paint on top with acrylic paint with the paper staying flat. I really like the combination of the qualities of the printed background marks, with the raised and more painterly marks added on top. Some of these new pieces of work will be exhibited in the summer exhibition at Cambridge Contemporary Art during July and August, where I am their 'Featured Artist'. There will also be some pieces exhibited during my Open Studio weekends, 4,5 & 11,12 July.
For the past few months I have been working on a new series of paintings and works on paper following a wonderfully inspiring trip to Marrakesh
A few of the new paintings are currently being exhibited at Byard Art, Cambridge.
