I’ve left in the previous news to 2021 so you can catch up………


Here is a quick review of previous news……

2021. A short but busy final season (Aug-Oct) at  Place Mill Gallery, Christchurch following the 2020 and early 2021 pandemic closure. Cherie enjoyed her time as both ‘Resident Artist’ and ‘Artist in Residence’ from 2014-2021. 

2020. Well, the exhibition year started off  in January/February 2020, and got off to a fabulous start -health and weather excepted – at The Ark, Compton Acres near Canford Cliffs Village in Poole. It was great to see so many familiar faces, and the new paintings were received very well. Indeed, one of the latest, ‘Sunny Wooded Walk’,  sold straight away. As always, we were made very welcome by the team, Monica, Rachel, Mel and Delma. They will make you most welcome too and if you have not had the chance to visit then pop it on the list of things to do. As well as Gifted Moments at The Ark with a great array of gifts, the plant centre is excellent and there is an award winning cafe on site, as well as the magnificent Japanese themed Gardens themselves of course. Charlie will be only too pleased to help.

Place Mill was closed by the council for the duration of the 2020 season due to the pandemic

 Clive’s short story ‘The Lost Sole’ is still doing very well -it is about a characterful shoe that has been washed away to sea, and has been adapted into a short animation film suited to both adults and children. The trailer is available on YouTube and off the website  and if you like it, you can buy the film for 99p from or Vimeo. It has already won six awards, including Flicks Film Festival, Feel the Reel, Top Shorts, Independent Shorts Awards and recently the Best Animation at the LIFF film festival in Ontario.

past news……

A lot of people from all over the country who saw Cherie featured in the BBC’s ‘Home Away from Home series where Devon (Paignton) was pitched against Dorset (Christchurch) came down to see what Place Mill on Christchurch Quay looked like for real, where the painting activity was filmed. For those who didn’t see it– Christchurch came out on top, with Cherie’s painting activity getting top marks!   

Cherie also featured on Louis Theroux’s new documentary on BBC 2 in October 2016 – this was regarding Cherie’s traumatic time as a Jimmy Savile victim when she was a teenager, whilst recovering from severe burns to her hands at Stoke Mandeville Hospital. Also, October 2017, Cherie was interviewed on stage by Dame Esther Rantzen in connection with Childline and the NSPCC to help raise awareness whilst discussing her own ordeal at the hands  of Savile and Bailey, a senior medical professional. This was featured also in the Bournemouth Daily Echo.  


 Cherie featured in a book called Lesser Known Christchurch by Steve Roberts. The ISBN number is 9781906651-268. It is published by Roving Press and costs £11.99.  It gives some of the unusual tales of Christchurch people and places.

I completed topiary gardener Keith Howkins’ life story called ‘The Garden House on the Corner…the story of a Berkshire lad and is available  (ISBN 9781906631512)through Amazon and all good book shops. For more information on the book or to order a signed copy while stocks last, please visit the website at  . This will be of particular interest for those with connections to Reading and High Wycombe.

Hopefully, I will see you at the exhibition, and it goes without saying, but thank you very much for buying any of Cherie’s paintings, prints or cards.

Best wishes
