I’m looking forward to one of my favourite events in York’s artistic calendar! York Open Studios takes place over two weekends in April, and this year I am also hosting a Preview evening on Friday 12th April, 6–9pm, where you can come and have first pick of the new work on show.

13-14 & 20-21 April, 10am–5pm
(preview evening Friday 12 April, 6–9pm)
Gallery Studio, Arnup Studios, Holtby, York YO19 5UA

There will be new paintings, life drawings and sketch books along with giclée prints, cards and books.

Here is a taster of the new work that will be launched on the 12 April and will be available to purchase during York Open Studios…
