Leonie's annual open studio event takes place this year on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st September at SE1 Studios in Bermondsey. 140 artists will be opening their studios to the public and many will be working in their spaces over the two days. Over the last year, Leonie has been working on a series of as yet unseen new prints and a series of new books. 

Visit the studios at Bow Arts SE1 Studios, Bermondsey Project, 46 Willow Walk, London SE1 5SF from 6-9pm Friday evening and Saturday 2-8pm 
Now that the sample of my new book 'Printess & the P' is safely at the binders I can be at one event after another. On Friday 6th and Saturday 7th September from 11am to 6pm I have work in 'To have and to hold: an exhibition of 50 beautiful books' at Flow Gallery, 1-5 Needham Road, off Westbourne Grove. 

Then it is Leonie's open studio event on the 20th and 21st September. 

Here in Thame, new work of mine in a variety of media is included in Sparksartists' exhibition 'Eating Our Words' at Time Out Cafe during the Saturday 29th Food Festival and from 23rd September to 5th October. 

For the October 'Big Draw' Leonie and I will be making drawings and prints with young people re-imaging buildings for a co-op window on Thame High Street. Then we are off to Marseille for the Book Project International fair on 18th, 19th & 20th of October, which takes place in a big tent near the Vieux-Port. We will be staying for one night in Le Corbusier's Unite d'Habitation building to celebrate our stay in the City of Culture. 

On the 2nd and 3rd of November p's & q's are also showing at the wonderful Fine Press Bookfair in Oxford.
