This year I will be doing fewer events. I have old animals and want to stay home and spend last days with them, and also I find that all the travelling fragments my work so much. I want to stay home and paint and sculpt and walk. So, when I am out and about do come and see me. These are the events I have booked in so far.
Solva Woollen Mill, with Karin Celestine 19th August 1pm-5.50
Karin and I will be at the mill, painting and felting, so come and say hi. This event will celebrate the launch of One Cheetah, One Cherry.
Come along, bring friends. There will be coffee and cake available.

Rooted in Nature is a short course on writing and illustrating to inspire a new generation of Earth Stewardship. More than that though it is about how to communicate a love of and knowledge of the wild for the next generation. Not just for writers/artists, we welcome anyone who is interested in learning how better to communicate ideas. The course is residential and there will be odd readings in the evenings if people wish to join us. Nicola Davies has a wealth of experience in this and I will muddle my way through as usual with everyones help. £495- £625 per person. So, come and join us. See the Ty Nwydd website for more info and how to book.
Signed books can be ordered any time from Solva Woollen Mill. Dedications can be added once form is sent, via email. They ship anywhere and there is no extra charge for signing.
