I was very pleased to hear that ‘There She Goes’ has been selected for AKA Contemporary Gallery’s Spring Exhibition in Cambridge – a new ‘venue’ for me.




Go local! This is one of two of my paintings that will be in a group exhibition at the intriguingly named Hidden House Gallery in Nunhead,

 The Gallery is hosting a exhibition for local artists over two weekends in March – Sat 16th and Sun 17th, and Sat 23rd and Sun 24th.

11am-5pm – The address is 2 Borland Rd, Nunhead SE15 3AJ – more details here:- Hidden House Gallery

Do drop in if you live nearby – it’s a very friendly space run by two local artists and this is the first time they have shown the work of other artists

alongside their own paintings. There will be over 30 artists’ work on display.  At the same time, a bit further north, my painting ‘There She Goes’

has been selected for AKA Contemporary’s Spring Show in Cambridge – here’s the link to the catalogue AKA Contemporary – Spring Show’




I’m very flattered to have been selected to take part in an online print drop called ‘The Directors Cut’ , part of Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair.

Here’s a link to my print Suzsi Corio- ‘Towards The Woods’ – The Director’s Cut  and here is  the whole online gallery:-  ‘The Directors Cut’ print drop 8-16 July

I’m especially pleased as I’ve only begun making these sort of one-off monotypes in the last few months, so feel pretty encouraged!


They say

“The Director’s Cut | Launches 08 July 2023

This year we’re delighted to announce the launch of The Director’s Cut. A special online-only Print Drop, 08 – 16 July 2023. The artworks will be available to buy through our website.

The Director’s Cut features an extended selection of Open Call artworks that were shortlisted by our panel of industry experts at the final stage of judging.

“The Director’s Cut is an opportunity to support as many exceptional artists as possible through our online print drop. Each year, due to constraints on physical space, it’s only possible to select a limited number of artworks to be exhibited at the Fair in October. The Director’s Cut was created in recognition of the huge amount of stellar submissions we received from our international artist Open Call.” – Jack Bullen, WCPF Director.

WCPF continues to be a pioneer in the celebration of contemporary original print.”



I’ll be taking part in the Artists’ Open House,  again this year on the weekends of May 13-14 and 20-21st, (11am – 6pm ) showing lots of new mixed media paintings, prints & greetings cards. Here are more details:- Directions and map – open studio If you’d like to come & have a look but are not able to visit on those weekends, let me know. I’ll be posting more updates on Instagram

Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour - painting selected for exhibition at the Mall Galleries. 

‘The Salt Marshes’ will be on display at the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour 211th Exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London.

I’m very flattered to have had a painting selected for this prestigious show for the 4th time – in past years, I’ve had paintings of dresses and the staircase at Kew Gardens in the shows but this is the first year I’ve submitted a landscape.

The exhibition will run from 30 March – 8 April 2023 and  If anyone would like an invite to the private view on 29th March, do get in touch with me.

This painting is from my series of views from the salt marshes near Tollesbury and you can see more details about it on the gallery’s online catalogue here:- RI Watercolours Exhibition Catalogue 2023



I went back to one of the private views Summer Exhibition with the family a few days ago and as we went into room V11, it was a thrill to see a red dot by my painting, especially as it was sold before the exhibition had even opened to the public. I was also very pleased to see so many red dots on many of my neighbours’ paintings – I hope you like ‘our wall’ if you are able to visit.   The exhibition runs from 21/6 until 21/8:-   more information about the Summer Exhibition





Monday was ‘Varnishing Day’ At the Royal Academy and a first chance to see our paintings in this year’s Summer Exhibition. I was very pleased to see my painting in room V11 which has been curated by Farshid Moussavi RA.  You can see a video of the whole room here:- a short walk-through room V11 at the Summer Exhibition





My painting of Bradwell, a  decommissioned power station seen on the horizon across the salt marshes of Tollesbury in Essex has been selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibiton 2022. It’s the 254th exhibition  The Summer Exhibition is the world’s largest open submission contemporary art show and has taken place every year without interruption since 1769. The theme of this year’s show is ‘Climate’ and it is co-ordinated by Alison Wilding RA. The exhibition will be open from Tuesday 21 June – Sunday 21 August 2022 10am – 6pm Tuesday to Sunday (last admission 5.30pm) Here’s some more info about it:- About the RA Summer Exhibition 2022




My landscape ‘Bradwell from Tollesbury’ has been shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2022 – what great news! I nearly didn’t enter, but then decided I’d submit this one about 2 days before the deadline – glad I did now.

The painting is on canvas and is a mixed media landscape of Tollesbury salt marshes in Essex- an unusual and beautiful place with unique vegetation and wonderful light, overlooking the river Blackwell estuary across to Bradwell sands and the decommissioned Bradwell power station. It’s an area that I love to try and capture in paint, ink and collage and this is one of a series I’ve made of the area.

After a difficult year when it was hard to paint very much (or to update my website at all!!)  it was lovely to have news that ‘Welcome to Peckham’ has been pre-selected for the RI Watercolours 2022 exhibition at the Mall Galleries.

It’s a mixed water-media painting of one of my ‘local landmarks’ – The Prince of Peckham. After having several of my dress paintings selected in previous years, it’s flattering to have a painting from one of my very different genres shortlisted for this prestigious exhibition.

2 watercolour collages of dresses preselected for RI Watercolours exhibition

2 of my watercolour paintings have been pre-selected for the Royal Institute of Watercolours exhibition at the Mall galleries. ‘Bessie’s Dress’ is a collage made from many fragments of hand painted pieces of paper with varied tartan and plaid effects. I really enjoyed making this painting. ‘Nancy’s Dress’ is a nod to the 20’s, now that we are in the 20’s again but was made before we knew what an awful start to the new decade was to come. Take care and stay safe, everyone.
