Venue Access Details
Our property is reached via 9 deep steps which have a hand rail but might pose a barrier for some. Oakleigh Road is a cul-de-sac off Marpool Hill, on the left as you go up towards the health centre. There is parking in the road. We are 10 minutes walk from the Magnolia Centre bus stop in town, maybe 15 mins from the station. Look for the 'Oakleigh Studios" sign in the window.

Extended Bio
32 years of teaching textiles at secondary level geared me up to paint and stitch non-stop since. I use humour as a communication tool but always have a serious mission- to cherish the Earth and respect one another.I place animals in human environments to expose the irony of the built environment- which is sometimes created to be uncomfortable rather than protective. I sold regularly from the Lost and Found pop-up gallery in Exeter which I ran for 3 years with my daughter Louisa Currier. My younger daughter Josephine Birch is also an artist and printmaker- we bounce ideas off each other.It's a family affair. Commissions taken. I sell framed and unframed original paintings in acrylic and watercolour, cards, prints and a range of textiles items including bags, throws, cushions and corsages. Sometimes I use the textile prints my daughter designs. Some pictures are textile based or collages. Oakleigh Studios open all year by appointment.
"Moments of Drama in Nature" has been my ongoing passion. Foxes calling across the river, the moment a frog leaps- I respond to what I have seen using textiles, collage, acrylic, watercolour and pastels .I love to try out new materials and create textiles items as well as paintings.


From Phear Park, go up Marpool Hill. Oakleigh Road is second on the left as you go up. No 6 has a sign in the window- Oakleigh Studios. Please note - 9 deep steps to property may affect access for some.
Parking available in the road.
