I love taking part in exhibitions. They’re a great way of making new connections and exploring new ideas and materials. Recently we’ve been looking at painted inscriptions on different surfaces – this one is an oak board about 6’ tall. It was lovely to be invited to exhibit at Winchester Cathedral as part of their celebrations marking Jane Austen’s anniversary. Winchester is a gem of a cathedral with some great inscriptions and the wonderful lettering of Michael Renton, an astonishing carver and engraver who became the Cathedral’s sign-maker.

The exhibition Inspired by the Word is organised by the superb Garden Gallery. It runs until 30 September 2017.
