Queen of the May edition

19 Feb 2006 / in about art

There are lots of advantages to not selling through commercial galleries, such as being able to keep my prices affordable. But one disadvantage is that I have to house and display all my own works which requires wall space. I have run out of this precious commodity again.

I hope that some of my pictures will find new homes to go hang out in during my exhibition coming up in May. I do love exhibiting – so many wonderful people turn up, both browsers and buyers with who it is simply delightful to talk pictures and drink tea.

I’ve been thinking about ways in which I can publicise my show and thought it wouldn’t do any harm to ask the editor of Artists and Illustrators magazine (pictured right) if he could run a feature on my work in the May edition to co-incide with my exhibition. Well, would you Adam and Eve it?! I had a phone call from him, a lovely bloke called John Swinfield, and he said he would! Talk about lucky – he said he’d picked me out from hundreds of hopefuls because he liked my picture Thames Magic at Eynsham and would illustrate the article with this.

I’m absolutely thrilled and amazed about it. Don’t forget to buy your copy. I believe it’ll be on sale at the end of March.
