Art Exhibition - Derby Teaching Hospitals

I'm delighted to be one of the artists participating in this years Air Arts 'Ten' art exhibition to be held across two Derby Hospitals from 21st March to a date in September.

Following the success of the Creative Approaches To Photography workshops I delivered last year at the Royal Derby Hospital, Journeys Through The Landscape will be moving from there to the walls of London Road Community Hospital, with further workshops planned in June for members of staff with an interest in photography. 

These workshops are designed primarily to develop creative picture making skills, with a focus on composition, and personal responses to subjects using natural light. It is an opportunity for colleagues to share their interest in photography, while learning different ways of looking at the landscape, in particular the Peak District, as well as developing photographic techniques.

Looking forward to seeing a small selection of my work back on the walls for sale at Banks Mill Studios in November for their annual Open Studios event, which is not to be missed.

Artists invite you into their studios to browse or buy their beautiful and very individual art. There are four floors with studios and corridors full of creativity and as if that weren't enough, just round the corner at the Enterprise Centre is the Artisan Fair…give yourselves a full day, and money in your pocket, you'll need it!

Christmas isn't far away, so it's a great opportunity to look for that special gift for a loved one, a friend or even a treat for yourself. Enjoy.

Opening Times - Friday 5pm-8pm Saturday/Sunday 10am-5pm

Beeston Camera Club - Talk

I have been invited to give a talk to Beeston Camera Club about my creative journey, how it all began, my inspiration and where my art has taken me over the last ten years, so as you can imagine, I'm really looking forward to sharing my work and my stories with the group.

As you may know, I founded a small photography group myself in 2008, so I'm hoping my visit and talk will also give me the chance to interact with club members, as it's equally important for me to hear about their own interests in photography as well as my own.

It's going to be a great night!  http://www.beestoncameraclub.co.uk
