Winter Festival at the Bishop’s Palace in Wells


Balloons Over Totterdown, Collagraph and watercolour

Balloons Over Totterdown in the Snow?  Well it’s Christmas and anything can happen can’t it?

I’m at the Winter Festival this weekend 6th-7th December 10am to 7pm.  It’s getting cold and frosty outside and this promises to be a really magical event.


Battery Point and the Waverley, Collagraph and watercolour

I was recently commissioned to make this picture for a birthday present. It’s a really quirky lighthouse at Portishead and the sunsets there can be really amazing.  As this is a collagraph where I add watercolour, each print is unique with it’s own personal atmosphere.  This one will be at the Winter Festival.

Totterdown Front Room Trail “Heroes” 14-16th November

Front Room


Here we go again, countdown to Christmas, starting with Totterdown’s Front Room Art Fair.  I will be in the Jarman Hall at the Totterdown Baptist Church on the Wells Road in Totterdown, Bristol. It will be open from 12-6pm on Saturday and 12 – 5pm on Sunday.  As well as some fantastic art and craft on sale, there is a lovely cafe selling drinks and lovely home-made cakes, all run by volunteers from the church.  It’s going to be a rainy weekend so what’s better than to go shopping and enjoy yourself!

Front Room Art Trail 18-20 November 2011

I’m joining in with the fun and games of Totterdown’s Art Trail Amplified which promises to be a creative feast of art, craft and this year,  music too. All the details are on the Front Room website, together with the artist, venues and map which you can download or collect from the venues over the weekend. I’ll be at the Totterdown Baptist Church on the Wells Road (TBC on the map) eating all the delicious cakes!

Hope to see you there!

Christmas Exhibition!

CLifton Suspension Bridge

Clifton Suspension Bridge

Clevedon Pier

I have focused on familiar Bristol scenes for this Christmas exhibition which is being held at Sky Blue Fine Art gallery in Henleaze, Bristol. The exhibition starts next weekend on Saturday 4th December. See below for a link to their website. Both were quite a challenge but I am pleased with the result.

Clifton Suspension Bridge is iconic and every artist wants to draw it, paint it and etch it but I might be the first to have sewn it!

Clevedon is famous for its pier, it is the only fully intact, Grade 1 listed pier in the country and you always get fantastic skies there. I couldn’t resist.

Ploughed Field in Snow

I will also be exhibiting at The Winds of Change gallery in Winchcombe near to Cheltenham (see link below) from 11th December. This is a beautiful little art gallery and worth a visit for that special present.

I have some Christmas cards for sale. Ploughed Field was inspired from walks with my dog in the Herefordshire countryside and Moonlight, from a view of Totterdown, a snowy scene we are already experiencing! If you would like any, please email me.


The price for Ploughed Field is £2 and Moonlight is £2.50 with a 15% discount for orders of 5 and over.

Have a lovely Christmas!

Exhibited at Front Room – the Totterdown Arts Trail

A successful trail this year, despite the horrendous weather. I was exhibiting at the Star and Dove pub, lots of people, good food and mulled wine on offer!

What’s a trail I hear you ask? You can find out more on their website but it’s essentially where a number of local people open up their houses for local artists to display their work. It’s hugely popular and on the appropriate weekend you will see many a bedraggled person walking (usually through the rain) around the local area looking at local art!

Keep your ears peeled for more updates of what I am up to. Click here to keep up-to-date via my monthly email of pictures and news.

Oh and here’s the trail’s website again.

Best wishes, Sue.
