Newsletter March 2013
Welcome to my March Newsletter, a little later than planned. Lots of exhibition news this month and a big deadline to finish my “Whisper of the Sith” project. I hope you will manage to come and see my work in some of the shows.
Gallery Heinzel Spring Show
Opening Preview Saturday 27th April 12pm-3pm
Open Daily 27th April- 1st June
I am very happy to be given the opportunity to show my “Whisper of the Sith” large scale works with Gallery Heinzel at the end of April. The project was supported by the Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire Visual Arts Awards and was due for completion in September but I have put all other work on hold to finish the 8 pieces for this showcase which I have been working on for the last year. The last piece “The Queen of Elphane” is being worked on at present and there will be some smaller pieces in the exhibition too. A big big thank you to Lesley and Bruce at Frameworks Gallery for all their help and expert framing services Frameworks Gallery

Well after my big deadline is complete I’m straight onto a bunch of new ideas and projects which I’m very excited about. The first is a series of colourful birds that I have done some concept sketches for. These pieces will include gilding in gold leaf. I have completed the first piece of a Peacock and others in the works include a Pheasant, Red Cardinal and Kingfisher so far. Here is a sneak peek of the first one-
I will be creating 3 new pieces for various Juried Shows coming up in the next few months, so keeping my fingers crossed for them.
There will also be some attempts at Pyrography happening real soon (watch this space) and then onto some new small works for a show in June.
I hope to squeeze in a wee holiday in July :)
