Ge Ba Chinese art of sole patching

About Me:

In my work I try to connect feelings - thoughts - ideas using sketchbooks and early morning I-pad drawing. The accidental making of art from practical necessity interests me. Layering of materials - for example in Ge Ba - the ancient Chinese craft of sole patching on worn cloth shoes - reminds me of the strata that families build into generations of ancestors and descendants.

Digital Print | Installation | Painting | Textiles

What to expect:

An installation may materialise as in previous years of opening my studio. I'm not sure yet. Certainly there will be a welcome and the level of attention you want. Any responses to my studio work are important to me.


Leave the A55 at Junction 15. Follow signs to the promenade. Find the grey house between the orange and green ones. Please come round the back for a warm welcome and conversation about art forms and creativity.


Nearby we have two playgrounds - a small skate park - nature walks along the cob - the Pavilion café next to the sea likes children and serves comfort food. For evening dining Ti Amo in Penmaenmawr offers a heart warming Italian experience.
