New Beginings

Changes have been huge this last 6 weeks after giving my notice to leave the Shed at the Bookstore. I can't deny it has been a very difficult couple of years.

So I thought I would try to work from home. I retired from the framing side of things last Autumn after all jumping up and down on a manual Morso moulding machine and handling 4ft sheets of glass around as a 60 year old 5ft midget with a back problem was getting too much.













Time to pursue my art further and workshops etc Then I came across a lovely little unit in Hartington that would make a smart little studio and gallery space for me.

Excited and enthusiastic again.

So Packing up my belongings and selling the tools of my trade has taken its toll and in between premises ( as Covid has hit the plasterers so the new building is running behind.) I find myself with a heart problem. Not of the relationship kind but of the beating variety and I have had to slow completely down stop mauling boxes and consider my future.? Quite scary! Having limited moments of wellness I thought I could catch up on the admin side of things.

Hence the website update.

So it seems I'm to sit and wait for medical intervention and wonder what will happen to the little gallery in Hartington that its also sitting waiting?
