The Kingcombe Centre is in the heart of Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Kingcombe Meadows Nature Reserve in West Dorset. I have been exploring this amazing landscape further, working on new paintings and monoprints back in my studio. Some work has been done in situ, in the lanes and woodland. It has been an uplifting experience, really inspiring and I hope you will enjoy the work…

Last May we enjoyed a 4 day residency exploring and drawing (literally!) inspiration from Kingcombe Meadows Nature Reserve – one of Dorset Wildlife Trust’s most important reserves. This show reflects the work created both on site and back in our studios..I’m lucky to live quite close so was able to re-visit during autumn and winter to enjoy the season and colour changes…worth a visit if you are in the area!
Here are a couple of my pieces – acrylic on canvas:
L -Twirling Twigs of Winter – 8″ x 8″
R -The Tangled Busy-ness of early Summer – 14″ x 14″

The Natural Eye
As a full member I will be exhibiting 8 pieces. Also this year, I will have fieldwork, sketches and small canvases completed as part of a collaborative project between SWLA and Dorset Wildlife Trust. Nine of us selected SWLA members spent 4 days at the stunning Kingcombe Meadows Reserve in West Dorset to sketch, photograph and record aspects of the traditional landscapes. All our work so far will be on display in the ‘Out of the Frame’ room in the Mall Galleries. Well worth a visit if you are in the area, lovely gallery cafe too!
Here are a couple of field sketches done over the late May holiday at Kingcombe:
As you may know I have a space here at the Attic Gallery, part of Broadwindsor Craft Centre.
This is a co-operative and there are about 16 of us here in the Gallery – painters, printmakers and 3D artists, with a brilliant cafe and craft units below us!
The Gallery is open 11 am – 4 pm Tues to Sunday, and the Craft Centre and Cafe 10 am – 5 pm every day…
