I’m no longer at Kitty’s Seaside Shop!
It was great to be part of The Old High Street for a while. I’ve made some good friends and really enjoyed working there. The shop was only temporary however, while we were busy making other plans!
Attention is now focused on my new studio (still in Folkestone), which we hope will be ready by November.
I’ll post photos of progress – it’s going to be a brilliant place to work when complete. In the meantime, I’m still accepting commissions.
– If you’d like to get in touch about a painting, drawing etc.
Exhibiting some work at Barfrestone Art Exhibition and Sale.
It takes place from tomorrow (Friday) until Sunday. I decided to take Valentino, a wood carving that I made in France a while ago.
A beautiful setting for the exhibition, the Great Barn at Barfrestone Court in the historic village of Barfrestone, Kent (CT15 7JJ). If you go please visit the 12th century Norman church of St Nicholas, step back in time…

I’m taking part for the first time and there’s a slight change of plan!
In the guide and SEOS website (information was submitted in the winter) my address is: The WoodShed, Bail Steps, Folkestone, Kent CT20 1SJ.
However due to delays with planning, my studio isn’t ready! The good news is I’m still working from Kitty’s Seaside Shop and studio – 2 minutes away in the Old High Street (otherwise known as the Creative Quarter) – hoorah!
You’ll recognise my shop – there will be assorted animals in the window!
Kitty’s Seaside Shop and Studio, 53 The Old High Street, Folkestone, Kent. CT20 1RN
By the way, don’t attempt to drive down the Old High Street! You can find parking nearby at Payers Park or down by the harbour.
As well as hopefully visiting me, you’ll find many wonderful shops and studios run by other creatives.
You’ll be spoilt for choice with places to eat too
- Congo Coffee, run by the lovely Marianne is directly opposite me.
- Further up the hill: Steep Street Coffee House with amazing cakes and a book shop.
- Googies Art Cafe is on Rendevous Street
- Favourite pubs: The Pullman on Church Street; the historic British Lion in The Bayle.
- The Lime Bar on Tontine Street is a music & chill-out venue with a great atmosphere
And don’t forget to visit The Harbour Arm – Folkestone’s new ‘place to be’!
