... And how did the Mayfair Exhibition go? Wow. It went well!
Not only was it so good to add more patrons to my growing list and to know that I am well received in the heart of 'London's Establishment': but to know that I have helped to raise such a great amount of money for such an important cause is very special.

Above, here I am papped in front of one of my very favourite paintings that has now gone to a welcoming new home. It was painted on the Lizard in Cornwall, looking down and past the Porthallow coastline. The show looked so lively and fitting, all hung together, a colourist's paradise!
It was really brilliant to meet such an interesting bunch of new people and to see my 'already' collectors come and take a spy too. Great to hear about the work's ongoing stories and contributing to tales in their new lives.
We 6 female artists, organised and curated by the wonderful Mimi Maxwell, were very happy to be showing alongside one another at the Herrick Gallery, and there was a really great energy to the show, not to mention the fact that you could barely move for lack of floor space for people AND we were careful with the invites.
I was particularly pleased to chat to Lord Mark Poltimore, deputy Chairman of Sothebys Europe and he said my work was very 'impactful and striking'. Good to know, and better to relay this into the universe before I forget it and a good thought like that languishes into the abyss of artistic self-doubt.
Next show - Cornwall.
