“I have just finished a successful week’s exhibition in the King’s Street Studio and Gallery in Margate along with 27 other Thanet photographers.

“I took the plunge and organised my own exhibition called ‘Maria and Friends’ at the same gallery, opening yesterday (July 3) and running until July 8. It is a beautiful venue and I would like to say a big thank you to the five photographers who have joined me and to all the staff at the gallery for their help.

“My next venue is the Crab Museum with Bird Wise East Kent Photography Competition where I have been invited for the prize giving and to display my pictures in 5 venues across Kent that will be hosting the exhibition.”

The gallery is open 11am to 4pm.
