Empty paint pot appeal!

Its the time of year when I start panicking about what to make for the TRAIL (Teignmouth Recycled ART In Landscape), which runs over the summer holidays from Shaldon to Dawlish. The exhibition is wonderfully inclusive, with submissions from local schools (pictured Sid the Seagull by Hazeldown School) and community groups to well known local artists and even international exhibits.

This year I am making a piece for which I need around 30 empty paint pots (or if its white or black paint they can still have paint in, I can use it on the sculpture)…keeping my idea under wraps for now so as to keep you all guessing what I am going to make (I bet you cant!). So if you are local and have some hanging about PLEASE contact me and I will

take them off your hands!

I was luck enough to win TRAIL last year with my boat sculpture and unfortunately I am the last winner to receive a prize as we have lost our funding this year, which is a shame. But the exhibition will go ahead anyway, thanks in so small part to the hard work and dedication of organiser, Liz Lockyear! Providing a wonderful free activity to get locals and holiday makers thinking about art and the environment in a fun way. Please come and have a look if you are in the area in the summer holidays.

The exhibition also uses the TAAG gallery for the indoor part of the exhibition, where the work changes from fun on the seafront to more serious art and some amazing pieces are available for sale, from small items of jewellery to large sculptures. It it not too late to submit a sculpture proposal to TRAIL, its a very friendly exhibition and you don’t have to be a professional artist to join in. Just click on the link to find out more

I am a stained glass artist working in Exeter and a busy mum of 2; trying to carve a path through the tide of washing and children's toys that stands between me and making beautiful things.
