The Salutation, The Quay, Sandwich. This Lutyens house and garden, planting believed to be by Gertrude Jekyll, has been restored after years of neglect, and the gardens re-opened to the public in May 2007 (as seen above). During the subsequent years under talented Head Gardener Steve Edney they have continued the good work, and the gardens have really come into their own. I am delighted to have been involved from the start of this process. Dog-friendly for responsible owners; open every day.


Also Currently Exhibiting at:

Pashley Manor, on the Kent/Sussex border, which opened for this season on April 1st and will continue through to 30th September, open on Tuesdays to Saturdays, plus bank holidays. It is a beautiful old house with extensive, very friendly gardens and a super cafeteria - excellent lunches. Throughout the gardens are interesting sculptures, most for sale, from many of Britain's leading contemporary sculptors.

Pashley Manor has won the Historic Houses Association / Christies's Garden of the Year award. "One of the finest gardens in England."

They have special events on these dates:

  • 21st April - 6th May, the wonderful Tulip Festival - not to be missed!
  • Sculpture in Particular, 27th May - 3rd June
  • 5th - 10th September, Dahlia Days
  • Christmas Shopping special open days in the shop (not the gardens).

Sussex Prairies garden deep in the Sussex countryside, one of the friendliest and most fascinatingly different gardens you'll find anywhere.

On Sunday 3rd September they have a special UNUSUAL PLANTS FAIR, at which several of their sculptors (including me!) will be present, along with other craft stalls and an opportunity to talk to the gardeners and plantsmen and buy plants.

Fire and Iron Gallery, Leatherhead

After a successful solo exhibition in their main showroom, running from October to mid November 2015, I have maintained a good selection of pieces with them. See more images at the Fire and Iron website and on their Facebook page, HERE.

Sir Harold Hillier Gardens

Also this year for the first time I am exhibiting at the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens at Romsey in Hampshire for their Art in the Garden exhibition, from May 13th to October 15th. They have (amongst other great settings in a truly lovely garden) a magnificent very tall tree-stump with gnarly holes, full of insect wildlife, and now also under attack from three different sizes of my woodpecker.

The largest woodpecker is a giant, over two feet tall, and really HEAVY; it was a struggle to get him positioned. The stags seen below are also there, contesting a lovely clearing for a rutting site.

Other Exhibitions, Gardens and Galleries:

Dunlin & Diver, 112 High Street, Deal, Kent, CT14 6EE - Telephone 01304 373 121. An exciting established gallery in Deal, on the Kent coast; they have an inspiring range of contemporary arts and crafts with a particular focus on pieces designed and created in Kent.

Lovely's Gallery, Northdown Road, Margate, Kent: a delightful gallery and arts and craft shop now in its fourth generation of family ownership.
