Coffee and Art – Perfect!

My work can now be viewed whilst you enjoy a lovely coffee and cake at the Pensieri Cafe, Ram’s Yard, Bedford.

Afterwards why not pop along to the newly refurbished Higgins Gallery, which is almost next door?

What better way to spend a relaxing afternoon?

Priory Tearooms, Dunstable

Dunstable Town Council has launched a new project to promote local makers – Showcase Shelving – in the Tourist Information Shop at Priory House, Dunstable.

During March you can see (and buy from) shelves by Joanne Bowes and Jan Drury featuring original art; prints and cards of original art; accessories; jewellery and sketch books.

Plus you can enjoy delicious tea or coffee and homemade cakes and snacks whilst you are there (and admire the recently restored undercroft in the TeaRoom).

Dunstable Revisited

Whoo hoo – the first in my new series uncovering South Bedfordshire’s hidden and taken for granted delights.

This will be available as cards and limited edition prints during March in the Priory house Shop, Dunstable.

Looking back at my previous work has finally inspired me to focus on more of my local views. Here is just a small taster – currently I am creating an new version of Dunstable Priory Church:

Hello February!

Well so much for New Year’s resolution to focus on planning for the year – January gone and have only managed to gather information about some forthcoming shows/call for artists but have done nothing with them – and have missed some deadlines!

BUT I have completely re-organised my Studio Room and started a new teaching job plus three events now booked for 2014 so maybe not so bad after all.

On the downside no Blogs so far in 2014 – have been a very bad girl – and no new work to show yet. So instead I will continue sharing some of my past projects.

So inspired by my friend Jenny’s fabulous photos of ancient Hornbeams I have decided to share some of my tree studies.
