Pop up shop in The Civic, Barnsley

This year has been such an exciting one and I had a crazily busy Summer! So I’m being very useful now and showing you some exhibitions that my work was in, even though they are now over, because I’m very helpful like that! But I did share on my twitter, Facebook and instagram, so hopefully you didn’t miss them.

One of the exciting things was my ‘pop up shop’ artist showcase at The Civic, Barnsley.

Sheffield Town Hall Limited Edition Screenprint

Barnsley Town Hall and Yorkshire Terraces digital prints

The Civic reopened as a theatre and art space in 2009, after being closed for over ten years. My main memory before that was from when I performed in a dance show there as a very small child. My dance partner kindly jilted me as we were about to go on stage. Not knowing what to do, I ended up standing still with my back to the audience.* It was good to create a much nicer memory of the Civic in my adult life by showing my work here!

The curators at The Civic did a fabulous job of displaying my work…

available on my etsy shop.

including Sharrow Vale Road Screenprint

*My skills at thinking on my feet have improved greatly since my days of being a tap-dancing tot. In fact, I believe I am good at it, both in my career and in my freestyle dance moves (I left the choreographed dance world behind me soon after the incident).

Another show for my work this summer was in the Up There exhibition at APG Works gallery in Sheffield. My Sheffield Town Hall piece was selected to be displayed – here is me and my print at the preview evening!

You can still buy the Sheffield Town Hall screen print on my etsy shop.

My illustrations and gifts at Calver Gallery, Bradford

This summer, I exhibited a selection of my pieces at the Calver Gallery at South Square Centre in Thornton, Bradford. A range of my screenprints were chosen along with my mugs, colouring book and Cantastic Cookbook zine as part of their Made:Yorkshire exhibition.

I am delighted to say that even though the exhibition has now ended, the Calver Gallery has remained a stockist - they have kept my pieces on display and are still available to buy.

South Square Centre is well worth a visit, it has a lovely gallery, shop and cafe in a very cute, historic building; in the village where the Brontes were born. Some of the other artists in this Yorkshire themed exhibition - whose work is seen alongside mine in these photos - were Sam Groom, Katch Skinner, Sonal Mistry and Maggie Magoo Designs. All of which are extremely talented and I was very proud to be showing with them.
