"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Augustus John, R.A.

Pendle Print Festival

Just returned home after taking part in the first Pendle Print Festival at the Higherford Mill Artists Studios at Barrowford near Colne in Lancashire. We had a lovely warm welcome from the resident artists and have had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend... and even sold a few prints! Like Art in the Pen, it was an opportunity  to meet and exchange ideas with a number of inspiring artists. Check out the links on the right to the work of Peter Smith and Lisa Moore.

Next on the agenda is a trip to the Lake District on wednesday morning to hang the prints for my solo show in the Forest Cafe Gallery at the Grizedale Forest Visitor Centre near Hawkshead in Cumbria.
