After the Flood

Four months after the storm surge, Art on the Quay is dry again and re-opening.

Art on the Quay is a working studio/gallery in a little boatyard next to a lovely pub in a pretty village  on the River Deben.  For an old-fashioned English day out, the place could hardly be more perfect.

Art on the Quay is stuffed to the gunwales with work by Claudia Myatt  (the artist in residence -who you are likely to meet if you visit).  There is also a smattering of my work besmirching the corners. Do go and look!

Opening Easter weekend and all summer long.

Fire in the Boatyard

Big drama last Thursday; fire in the boatyard.  It was about 4am, a few loud explosions (I leapt out of bed) and the air thick with the horrible smell of burning fibreglass.  The smell lingered all day.  Gazette report here.

Mothering Sunday

It's Mothering Sunday in the UK today. The daffodils are out and the sun is trying to shine.  Wishing my mum and all the mums everywhere a happy day.
