The 2018 Art Trail was a big success. I would like to thank everyone who came along to one or even all the ten venues to see the variety of artwork and had a chance to chat with the artists. In my studio and our garden four artists exhibited their work, James Ware and Gary O’Neil with large paintings, Margaret Fairhead showed textile paintings and I displayed mainly sculptures and some life drawing sketches. We had about 500 visitors over the wonderful and sunny weekend. Children enjoyed drawing the life-size giraffe and our improvised “Someville Art Cafe’ was busy all day long. The £240 donations from the cafe went to support the local MS society.

The man in the middle is the new president of Botswana, he was one of my students. It is very nice to be remembered after such a long time!
At the ‘Moseley in Bloom’ festival on the 30th June I did a sculpture demonstration
