Many events are being cancelled even up to Christmas so unsurprisingly there is only one exhibition I can currently rely on. Organised by Uk Artists, I will be exhibiting alongside other artists at The Royal Priors in Leamington Spa from 1st-20th September, open everyday 11-5pm. I am showing work I have yet to exhibit and some new browser work too.
It is unusal times with a virus that is keeping us in lock down. Many events have been cancelled or postponed including my own.
On the positive I am able to work in my studio and hopefully when life resumes I will have so new work to show.
I do want to share a piece of music composed by http://www.duotonemusic.com A piece inspired by my painting now called ‘Slow Wave,’ after Duotone’s composition.

A short film of 2 Blues exhibition
I’ve completed some new work for the 2 Blues Exhibition, which is currently on show in the Floor One Gallery, Rugby Museum and Art Gallery.
I am showing alongside abstract artist Gordon Connell until the 5th March and we are open everyday from 10 – 5 pm.
Looking back & forward.
As I look back on 2019 I believe my work has progressed, in the way I use paint and other mediums. I have made a concerted effort to work on a larger scale and feel I have been successful. I will still continue to work small too, I get a lot of pleasure from working at different scales. I’ve also been developing my etching skills and I am particularly enjoying dry point. I am intending to try collagraph printing and sugar lift when I next making a copper plate etching. My motivation in all scenarios is mark making and the different qualities I can achieve..
As well as progress in my work I have also been involved in more art exhibitions and events and hope to continue building on these in 2020. My next project is an exhibition at Rugby Museum & Art Gallery, where I will be showing alongside Gordon Connell
Some of the work I’ve sold this year
As the year comes to an end, I still have some paintings showing at https://whitehorsegallery.co.uk/ I have been the showcase artist, exhibiting more work than I would normally. They are from my Time and tide, landscape and memory series.
Looking forward, I have been selected to go through to the next round of the Ironstone Art Prize and in February I will be exhibiting with Gordon Connell at the Floor One Gallery, Rugby Museum and Art Gallery, Rugby. 22nd February-5th March inclusive. There will be a viewing on the 22nd February, times to be confirmed!
