4 new works using mono print & stitch on envelopes will be on show in Hitchin in May.
at The Arts Nest Gallery throughout May. These works reflect my growing fascination with exploring light, colour and mark to reference ideas to do with object, time and place.

delighted that a group of my prints have been selected for a new gallery based at Haverfordwest in Pembrokeshire, Wales.
3 of the Wallace works will be on show in the opening exhibition which also features work by John Piper, Henry Moore, Graham Sutherland and fellow Digswell Artist Ross Loveday.
The gallery situated at the harbour side in the thriving west wales town of Haverfordwest is a brand new gallery space and aims to promote and showcase established and emerging artists.
The launch event is on Saturday 12th April 10-4pm.
The recent trips I have been making to North Norfolk with its captivating light and atmosphere, have had a subtle influence on my current work; the result being that the ‘Rosyas’ group not only have a landscape feel but are looking lighter and brighter.
I’m currently working on a new group of larger envelopes using mono print, collage and stitch for our upcoming Open studios at Digswell Arts Trust Studios. For these works I have been trying out over printing with more thinner, transparent layers of ink in order to give a more multilayered feel. I have also been drawn back to some earlier works where I was using scar like lines and diffused scratches for the mark making. I love the way these marks break up the inky surface and allow us to glimpse colours and marks underneath.
The interest for me with these is the link between marks, colours, shapes and process and the association with object, memory and place.
