Lōemis Festival

New painting alert - art show opening 14th June and on until June 20th, with amazing artists and crafters like Pepper Curry, Tomas Richards, Isobel Joy Te-Aho White, Gemma Proebst, and more. You are very welcome to attend the opening, from 6pm in the Thistle Hall exhibition space.

Also, I'm performing poetry with music for an incredible evening at Epilogue - five poets and a heart-rending requiem.
