This week I hung an exhibition of my work at the Coach House Gallery which is at Winterbourne Botanical Gardens, Birmingham.

Winterbourne is part of the Birmingham University campus.

It’s an Edwardian Arts and Crafts house built for the family of John Nettlefold in 1903.

It’s last owner bequeathed it to the University where it became the Botanical Gardens in 1944.

It’s one of those magical places that has held onto the history of the past and simultaneously successfully embraced the future.

And my colourful work has ushered Spring in a little earlier than Mother Nature (it’s trying to snow today)

Exhibition hanging takes patience and stamina (good step-ladder muscles!)

One of the most fun things to do was fill the glass exhibition case.

I have laid out sketchbooks, pattern design swatches, an old paint palette, some tubes of paint, brushes, pencils and design work that shows how I use my original paintings digitally.

It was fun to set the scene.

And now I’m happily heading off to a restful weekend – there’s a G & T with my name on it!

Exhibition is up until 12th March
