all primed and ready to go

A 5 foot by 3 foot canvas primed and ready to go….
Having my ‘Reverence’ painting selected for exhibition at the Mall Galleries feels like permission to continue painting large scale paintings; following my heart……

managed to un-earth the printing press :-)

Great to be able to use the printing press at Northlight Art Studios for my new lino prints. Rubbing the backs with a spoon may be just as effective, but is a little time-consuming – not to mention the thumb-cramp!!!!
Pleased with the results. Come and check them out at the
Winter Open Studios on Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December!!!

'Artists of The Year' Exhibition


My painting ‘Reverence’ has gone down to London

in preparation for it’s appearance in the Artist and Illustrator magazine’s

Artists of The Year’ Exhibition at The Mall Galleries.

You can have your say and vote for it to be the winner of the Viewer’s prize by following the link below!!


In an attempt to let in some artistic enlightenment I am painting the studio window frames white…..
New paintings and lino prints will be pouring forth shortly, no doubt!!!

A sale at Womad :-)

Lots of sunshine, lots of music, a fair amount of rain and a great time had by all!

The mugs and cards went well and it was extra nice to sell a painting at a festival 🙂
