I previously worked from a studio that I shared with my sister, Juliet Percival, in Fowlers Yard Durham (Unit 6). To see more of her work as a medical illustrator, please click here. In June 2014, I relocated to another studio further down the street in Fowlers Yard, Unit 2. This studio offers much more space for all my printmaking equipment, and also leaves room for a small gallery area, alongside my workshop space.
My studio in Unit 2 is normally open Tuesday - Saturday, 10am - 4pm, or by appointment. I am more than happy to welcome anyone to my studio outside of these official opening hours, if I can help with a specific enquiry.
THE STUDIO WILL BE CLOSED DURING THE FOLLOWING DATES THIS SUMMER;
From Saturday 2nd June, until (and including) Saturday 9th June
From Friday 27th July, until (and including) Friday 3rd August
The studio will occasionally be closed over lunchtime or at other times during the day, whilst I attend to etching and other studio activites that do not lend themselves to public access, or due to commitments elsewhere... if you are planning a specific visit, please email me beforehand to avoid disappointment.

Parking in Fowlers Yard is notoriously risky... any car parked for more than 20 minutes often gets a ticket from the wardens that are always on duty, and so the best way to reach the studio is on foot. There are several large car parks near the city centre and if you find your way to the Market Place on foot, just go through the covered market and out the back entrance, and you're in Fowlers Yard.
Visitors are welcome to come and see printmaking in action, and see a wide range of my work for sale on display. But please note that I do not sell my prints from my studio at prices that undercut the established gallery retail values for my work. Also, if initial interest in a print is the result of gallery exposure, the gallery in question will remain involved with any sale that may result.
