Ctrl/Shift now continues its tour to The National Centre for Craft & Design (NCCD) in Sleaford, Lincolnshire. 2 February – 22 Apr 2019.
Ctrl/Shift takes shifts and changes as its theme, in particular it is centred on artists whose practice is or has transformed, in small or large ways, especially towards expressions of innovation in textile art.

My works ‘Total Support’ and ‘Lippy, Excess, Unruly’ will be on display there.
Hope you can get along.
It’s not often an artist get the opportunity to reflect on their own public artist talk, but taking part in Phoenix Spotlight allowed me to not only reflect on my practice, but also on how I talk about my work, thanks to a review on Phoenix Spotlight event by Jake Francis for The Verse.
I have to admit I was more nervous than usual, and after a few conversations after the event understood this to be because I was presenting on home ground and to other Phoenix Artists and Staff, which made the event intimate and a space to bare all. I could not tell you what I said during the 45 minuet talk about my practice, but gauging from the lovely audiences response to Tom Heatleys’ and my own talks, as well as Jake Francis review, it seems the event went well.
Thank you to everyone who came along and to the Phoenix Spotlight organisers for making it a nurturing and supportive event.

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.
