Isle of Arts exhibition 2014

I was very happy to be invited to exhibit some of my masks as part of the Arts Trail during this years Isle of Arts Festival held in Ventnor Isle of Wight. My masks are on display along with a work by other local artists,  at the main Arts Trail venue at the Youth Centre hall in Ventnor. The exhibitions runs from Tuesday 29th April until Saturday 10th May and the venue is open daily from 12.00-4.00pm.

I hung my pieces yesterday and grabbed a few pictures, they are not too great as my little camera was a bit fussy about the lighting but they are fine as a record for me :)

Visions in Blue. Winter. The Countess. The Lovers. Dark Angel

The Pale Queen (large mask). Nightshade. Bleeding Hearts. Absinthe

Visions in Blue



  1. Hope it's going to be a success! are the red and purple little ones, freshly made ?I didn't remember them, you don't sell the countess ?

    1. Thanks dearest :)) Bleeding Hearts & Nightshade are ones I finished a couple of years ago. Part of a series of masks inspired by beautiful but poisonous plants. They've been tucked away for a while waiting for me to get my act together and put them on Etsy ..lol :)

      The Countess is not for sale as I was never 100% happy with how she fits onto the face, she's not so comfortable to wear for long (in my opinion). I know sometimes I am probably too much a perfectionist and I have problems selling pieces that may not be quite as I hoped ;) But lots of people seem to like her so perhaps it is time to let her go... I will think on that one ;)) XXX
