Ria’s garden studio (pic to follow: ‘garden studio’) was first open to the public during August 2019 for the week-long exhibition. At her first H.O.S. private view Ria unveiled a large and emotionally charged painting created in memory of a dear friend. This piece sold on the night and the proceeds given to the local hospice.

This exhibition proved a great success for Ria and she booked for 2020. Sadly, though, this was postponed until 2021 because of the Covid- 19 pandemic but H.O.S. 2021 was worth waiting for. Ria made many sales at this event and is now working on commissions, a book illustration project and more imaginative landscapes.
