Now showing at The Riverslade Gallery

I'd better tell you why I've been busy framing prints . . .

A selection of my prints and cards are now for sale at The Riverslade Gallery in Saffron Walden. The gallery is run by members of SWAT (Saffron Walden Arts Trust) all the art and craft for sale is made by local artists and makers. After being 'approved' by the committee I was given the thumbs up to deliver some framed and unframed prints and some cards to the gallery. I've just returned to my studio after delivering my work to Tony, who was looking after the gallery today, it's lovely to be part of such a talented group of local artists and a great excuse to go to Saffron Walden more often - I love the market and Sceptred Isle (the lovely deli) and there's a brilliant Oxfam bookshop (bought three novels today).

If you're in the area, you'll find The Riverslade Gallery in Hill Street, just at the end of the little lane leading to Waitrose - you'll see the sign on the railing . . .

when the gallery is open you'll see a board at the end of the lane - don't be shy, pop in and have a browse . . .

you'll find lots of beautiful things and it's a great place for Christmas present buying - I'm going to drop hints about the gorgeous jewellery ;-)


  1. How exciting-I hope you do very well.

  2. The two prints I bought from you look splendid in our living room. I have to say, the framing cost more than the prints, and the framer was very impressed to be framing limited editions. I don't think you cahrge enough!

  3. Oh I LOVE that gallery - we're in SW most Fridays and I usually try to visit and see what's new - and now I can go in and find your work and say proudly "I know the artist!"


  4. Best wishes to you for reaching lots and lots of appreciative eyes at The Riverslade Gallery.

    Remembering the cost of framing some of my prints (etchings and drypoints) for exhibits long, long ago, made me laught a bit at that "patron's" comment.


  5. What a lovely place! (Hmmm...never been to Saffron Walden, plot, plot)The gallery looks lovly, hope you do really well.

  6. The gallery certainly looks worth a visit. What a wonderful excuse to go to Saffron Walden!
