I am opening my studio for the day on Saturday 1st of December for a special Christmas event with an opportunity to buy some christmas pressies, have a mince pie and take a look at a selection of work I've made this year. I'll have christmas cards, calendars, prints, original paintings and other items for sale. It's also the christmas fair at Fort Victoria that day as hosted by Timetaxi C.I.C & Archaeology Discovery Centre so if you fancy it you could have a lovely festive arty tour around the West Wight!

Wolverton Garden Fair features over 120 Island and mainland exhibitors representing a wide range of gardening and country arts and crafts. Visiting nurseries sit alongside the wonderful Island nurseries with all the traditional delights of a genuine Garden Fair including entertainment to suit all ages featuring: dogs shows, Elizabethan re-enactors, falconry, magic and music.
The exhibition showcases food illustrations which were made each day in February 2018. The self initiated challenge was born of a love of food illustration and inspired by the annual ‘Inktober’ art challenge where people across the world create an ink drawing every day in October.
Each original artwork displayed in the cafe is available for purchase along with prints upon request. On the 5th October there will be a twelve course taster menu night devised by head chef Dave Holley with brand new artwork provided by me to coincide with the event. All artwork will be displayed until the beginning of November. Tickets will be available for the event from the Quay Arts box office.
