Hampshire Life -The Antiques Hunters

I love the work of Bowden Knight and was delighted to be asked to write about them (and their dream lives, chasing down antiques and brocante) for Hampshire Life magazine.

Hampshire Life – The Sorting Office

Local authorities are always getting stick for making cutbacks. But Eastleigh Borough Council in Hampshire deserves all the praise I’ve heaped on it for instigating and supporting this initiative – funding craft and design units in the town’s former Post Office backroom. This place has received praise from design guru Wayne Hemingway and no wonder – it’s the perfect example of what every local authority should be doing and I was delighted to bring it to further public attention in Hampshire Life magazine’s March 2017 issue.

Sandbanks (and other places)

Love this painting by Richard Watkin art. Inspired by the iconic places of Dorset, Hampshire and Devon, Richard creates these nostalgic, vintage travel-style prints. My feature about his work will appear in the Bournemouth Echo’s Seven Days magazine in the next few weeks.
