Avenir Light is a clean and stylish font favored by designers. It's easy on the eyes and a great go-to font for titles, paragraphs & more.

Work on website.
1. Another oil of frolics in the river.
2. A still life this time, in oils called Zinnias and Spoons
3. A life-sized German Shepheard in cold-cast bronze, commissioned by the owner of the dog, modelled and cast by myself.
4. Lino-cut in two colours with watercolour sky.
5. An old piece, no longer available, displaying my chainsaw styling of cherry wood. The head, body and tail were joined together using old horse harness chains so that it writhed sinuously when floated in gently moving water.
6. Myself in my print shop
7.8.9.10.11.12. Six winters in the making which I call Reasons to be Cheerful. They illustrate Fire, our lovely planet earth, the water cycle, the wonders of sexual reproduction, photosynthesis and the fact that ice floats. Without these our species would be sunk.
I can supply a coloured ‘blueprint’ of the stitching pattern or you could make up your own reasons to be cheerful.


I have been making art for decades. First as a primary school teacher, then as a sculptor with my partner and husband, John Hardy at Wickmere Drystone and lately as a painter and printmaker
I sculpt mostly animals and children for outdoors in cold-cast bronze but love carving in wood for indoor pieces (if only there were more hours in a day!)
The 2D work has developed over the last 10 years. Completing a diploma at the Norfolk Painting School with Martin Kinnear, I remain enthusiastic for oil paint on board and continue to walk the journey painting presents me with.
Parallel to this, church architecture, which I love to draw, lends itself to lino printing. The sharp contrast of light on the medieval churches in Norfolk is a favourite exploration in my practice.

I am exhibiting with Maggie Simmons and Angie Maddigan at the Studio in Wickmere, as part of the ????????? Trail.
We have been friends for ages and are doing workshops in making and using natural inks and clay modelling as part of our North Norfolk Open Studios.
