Delamore Exhibition

Exciting times lie ahead! Next month, I have a couple of collages in an exhibition! This is a pretty big deal for me, as I haven't been involved in an exhibition since my degree show....18 years ago! That makes me feel VERY old! The annual exhibition is run by Delamore Arts, it runs throughout May, and judging by the website it is going to be a cracker. I dropped my work off last week, and the grounds alone are beautiful: the magnolia trees are in blossom and there will be various sculptures on display in the gardens, as well as a whole variety of delights inside the house.

I have 2 pieces on show: this one of Mevagissey

...and another of St Michael's Mount.
 It'd be nice if someone bought one!
If you are in the area (Ivybridge, South Devon) I recommend you check it out! Details are on their website.

Meanwhile, I have been making more cottages

...and lighthouses....
...and here is a present I made for my sister-in-law! Driftwood and acrylic on canvas.

Also, I just took delivery of some new greetings cards today. They are all from my original collages, including the ones in the exhibition. They are available to buy from my website

Thats all for now folks! Have a great week!


  1. Fab lighthouse. And good luck with the exhibition, I am pretty certain that you will sell! Ax

  2. I'm sure you'll sell those wonderful works of art :o)
    I love all your cottages and the lighthouse is perfect.
    Best wishes

  3. I love your work.
    I was in Cornwall last year and would like to know how much your St Mchaels mount picture is.

    1. Hi Chris, the original (framed) is priced £375 in the exhibition, but prints are available - £45 plus shipping x

  4. Wishing you all the best with the exhibition. Your other work is beautiful as always.
    I'm so looking forward to visiting your part of the world in early June. Cornwall, here we come.

  6. You already know I love your work but, did you know I'm also very proud of you?
    No, I'm not related and no you didn't bribe me to say the above LOL!
    I'm also a little envious of your talent, but today there is no room for envy!
    Hope you do well at the Exhibition.
