THE DIE IS CAST

My work is done. Everything is in place for my Open Studio exhibition ‘Thru the Keyhole’ and I’m ready to throw open the side gate. The responsibility is now firmly in the eyes and minds of any visitors. I shall, of course, be there to make cups of tea and coffee and hand round the [...]

IT WON’T BE LONG NOW

The Coastal Currents Arts Festival 2015 will be kicking off shortly. The brochure is very shiny and very exciting. Hastings and it’s environs will be awash with all things arty. Click HERE to download the brochure.

In the meantime the key to my personal success will rely heavily on trying to expand my taste away from [...]

OPEN STUDIOS 2015

Later this year, September I believe, I’ll be throwing open my side passage so that peeps can gawp at my doings and wonder.

A typical conversation from the last time I participated in this annual vibrant Coastal Currents cultural event ran along these lines.

This iconic landmark which has stood in Fairlight for almost an hour and a half now, is one of the main reasons the village is considered to be a “have to, must do” tourist destination.
The London Eye has copied this design and I wish them every success in trying to be as popular as this [...]

EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT STICKS

My continuing efforts to inform and educate are not halted because I’m in Surfugal.
There is no particular wrong and right end of a stick to get hold of. In very basic terms it depends on whether you want to poke someone in the eye or club them over the head. This particular stick has [...]

I MISS MY SHED

The Open Studios ‘thang’ finishes this weekend. In many ways I’ll be pleased as I’ll get my shed back.

It has never been so tidy and organised. I’m looking forward to messy pottering again. In the meantime I shall pretend to be very neat and efficient to the visitors that will no doubt be flocking to [...]

BACK TO MY ROOTS

Not long to go now. Here is a piccy of my very latest piece. If you want to see what it’s all about you’ll have to pop into the Cliff Top Residence during the next two weekends.*

The population in and around Hastings is a diverse one. Arty fartists, culture vultures, the bucket-and-spade brigade, occupants of [...]

FOR THOSE WHO MISSED MY VERY PRIVATE VIEW

Oh goody, the first review is in and it’s extremely positive.
