Exhibitions

Dazzled
Her most recent exhibition Dazzled: paintings, prints and watercolours took place at the Shetland Museum and Archives, Lerwick 11 May – 16 June 2019. The exhibition comprised mostly Shetland work from sketchbook drawings made whilst out walking to mixed media paintings on canvas and paper, also watercolours, collagraph prints and a series of bespoke cushions using designs based on peat, stone and flowers using Shetland colours. The exhibition included a new artist book ‘Wandering’ created from drawings, photographs, colour notes and watercolours. It was printed using the risograph process at Gaada, an artist led organisation based in Burra, Shetland.

Hav & Himmel, Denmark
In May 2014 she was the artist in residence at Doverodde Kobmandsgard, Hurup Thy, Jutland, Northwest Denmark. From this base many visits were made to the coast especially Agger beach and Agger Tange famous for stunning sunsets. She took a long drive up to Skagen on the northern most tip of Denmark and discovered the Danish artist Anna Ancher at the Skagen Museum. The residency resulted in a joint exhibition with the Danish artist Mette-Sofie D. Ambeck at Doverodde entitled Hav & Himmel, (Sea & Sky) from May to June, 2015.
