A few photos of the opening on Friday last week. Thank you to everyone who could come and made the effort to go out in such horrible weather! It’s always nice to have feedback from viewers – that’s why we make art in the first place.
A special thanks to Menna Thomas for her precious help. The exhibition will be open until 14 August in Oriel Carn, Caernarfon from Thursday to Saturday from 10am to 3pm. And leave us a message on the Comment Book!
At the beginning of the pandemic, I worked on a series of watercolour sketches in a sketchbook made of Khadi paper. This sketchbook, from which some works were used in the Six Shot Gallery online exhibition in October, served as a basis for the body of work that is presented in this exhibition. The project was done with friend and local artist Susan King who also developed a body of work on the same subject.
“Lockdown” will be open from 2 July until 14 August 2022 in Oriel CARN in Caernarfon from Thursday to Saturday from 10am to 3pm.
My new exhibition Résumé is now visible on the online gallery of contemporary visual art The Signifier-Six Shot Gallery. It will be visible during the whole month of October. You can see it by clicking here. If you use Twitter, click here.
I am delighted to have been offered to exhibit six of my newest works for the online art magazine The Signifier in the Six Shot Gallery project.

Following the outbreak of Covid 19 I started to respond to the situation. In autumn 2020 I began a series of watercolours in a book made of Khadi paper. The book took me to a space of expression on the consequences of Covid-19, on personal lives as well as on economic outcomes.
There was and still is a sort of contradiction between blunt statistics, sheer facts, numbers of deaths, the state of the economy, the loss of the known, the routine and the organic side of things. The virus is part of life, and life isn’t always about beauty and miracles, it is also about destroying, colonisation of cells, invasion.
To illustrate that contradiction I chose watercolour for its organic feel, contrasted with texts illustrating the cold facts we now hear every day of our lives, about the changes, the losses, the restrictions.
Eventually I made 40 individual works on the subject, from which these six are an extract.
10 of my latest work are on display in Balaclafa CARN in Caernarfon. The festival is a non profit event to raise money for Bangor Women’s Aid and to celebrate the creativity and talent of women in North Wales.
All works are for sale and part of the money will go to Women’s Aid Bangor . The festival will go on until the 6th of April.
