The Annual Exhibition of the Society of Wildlife Artists takes place from 19th – 29th October

The Natural Eye
Mall Galleries
London SW1

Connect : Create : Celebrate

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:

Artist residency with Dorset Wildlife Trust and SWLA

    I recently discovered I am to be included in a project with Dorset Wildlife Trust and the Society of Wildlife Artists, at Kingcombe Meadows in Dorset. The residency is at the end of May this year, with ongoing work and a show next year at Kingcombe also.

This is very exciting. Kingcombe is a special Nature Reserve, an amazing patchwork of fields with thick hedgerows, ancient green lanes and wooded areas, with the river Hooke running through…   more news later

New Exhibition at Bridport Arts Centre – Fringes of Land 12 April – 14 May


An innovative exhibition comes to the Arts Centre – exploring Boundaries…here the intricacies of our rich coastline are revealed, inspired by coastal forms: where land meets sea.

Both Heather and Antonia are established and well known professional artists, based in Dorset. Both are drawn to the coast and coastal edges and are pleased to present this collaborative new show.

Heather – oil and charcoal, Antonia – acrylic and printmaking.

Antonia and Heather have strong links with the area, celebrating Dorset’s unique coastline in very different styles, yet with a common goal…

The well-known Café and Foyer areas have created a sympathetic setting for Paintings, Printmaking and text pieces: a Celebration of Dorset’s unique coast…
