This past few months I’ve been painting madly away in my studio in preparation for two solo shows coming up soon. 

The first, entitled ‘Breathing Space’, will be at Anteros Arts Foundation in Norwich, in the main gallery, from 3rd to 14th May, and is a varied show including some of my new works, a few of which are shown here, alongside several existing favourites.

My second show, entitled ‘Salt & Sand’, will be at The Grapevine Gallery in Burnham Market, north Norfolk, and will solely consist of work inspired by the creeks, reedbeds and marshes of the wild expanse of the Norfolk Saltmarsh coast, where, as you may know from many posts on this blog, I spend a lot of time walking and sketching.

I think it’s clear that I’ve been putting into practice some of the mark-making techniques I learnt at the Emily Ball workshop back in January!

  2. Hi Mari, thank you for leaving such nice comments on my blog. I think the reason you couldn’t get on the post is that I deleted it because of a silly spelling mistake, I made a quick replacement…of course the original is better!!
    Your work is beautiful and inspiring…

  3. Fab work, as usual, Mari. “Pools of light” is particularly nice. Good luck with your exhibitions, you are too far away for me to visit but I hope that you sell lots of work.
