In the past, my work has sold through the American Museum in Bath, Angels Gather Here in Minchinhampton and Gillyflowers in Winslow and at present through 'Made in Stroud' and 'new Brewery Arts Centre' in Cirencester.

I have exhibited and sold two pieces (and further renditions of these) at the famous Gallery Pangolin in Stroud ; my tiny fabric wrens and Christmas robins on twisted willow.

If you are at all intrigued they cam be seen here: http://www.gallery-pangolin.com/works/a-chime-of-wrens/1236
and my Christmas Robins here:
