An exhibition at a public gallery showcases the talents of a member of the Roy's of Wroxham family.
Mary Roy, 52, is having her first solo exhibition at the Broadland Framers and Crome Gallery on Red Lion Street in Aylsham.
The artist has Down's Syndrome, and lives at Thornage Hall. Her favourite medium is felt-tip pens, often used continuously until they dry out.
She likes patterns, often based around squares, using her favourite colours of red, pink, purple and yellow.
She has been weaving on Thornage Hall's looms for many years. Her cloth is turned into high quality domestic textiles such as rugs, scarves, oven gloves and tea towels. These are on display together with her coiled ceramic bowls and mugs, embroidery, ceramic and willow work.
