Earlier this year my work ‘the secrets we keep from ourselves…’was installed in Lord Byron’s Dressing Room at his ancestral home, Newstead Abbey, Nottinghamshire. The work was part of the ‘Lace Unveiled’ exhibition 10 March – 22 April 2018. This is the first time ‘the secrets we keep from ourselves….’ was installed solely by The Nottingham Museums Team since the work was acquisition into Nottingham’s Textile Art Collection in 2016.
A virtual tour of the work in situ can be viewed here https://v21artspace.com/lace-unveiled-newsteadabbey

I had such a wonderful time in Riga last week. The press conference and opening of The 6th Riga International Textile and Fibre Art Triennial at the ARSENĀLS Exhibition Hall, Torņa Street were lively and well attended. The exhibition itself spans across three vast arched spaces, presenting a diverse body of Contemporary Art Textile work, interweaving thinking around the exhibitions’ selected theme of Identity. Each art work had been well placed and given space to breathe… The exhibition is supported by its publication giving a generous double page spread to each of the 85 selected artists. The following two day International conference IDENTITĀTE / IDENTITY, took place on the 7-8 June in the beautiful terracotta Art Museum “Riga Bourse” in Dom Square.
I am very proud and honoured of being part of both the 6th Riga International Textile and Fiber Art Triennial and its two day conference. I met so many incredible fellow Textile Artists from around the world !!! My thanks to; Velta Raudzepa, MA, Project Manager of the Triennial and Head of collections, Latvian National Museum of Art/ Museum of Decorative Arts and Design, the Organizing Committee of the Triennial and the Museums’ teams who all worked so hard to bring this important and monumental exhibition and programme together.
