I live and work near the river in Richmond upon Thames. The riverside and nearby Richmond Park provide a rich source of inspiration for my work. I also find the history of the area hugely inspirational. Other sources of inspiration come from my travels, in particular the desert landscapes of New Mexico and California.
I think it’s important for an artist to continuously experiment and try different techniques. In following this through, I found a way that I can bring together the different methods and mediums that I enjoy using. I find working with a mix of media particularly exciting as I can combine all of the elements that I enjoy into one artwork – painting, photography and digital photo manipulation.
My blog is intended partly to give an insight into the way I work and partly to give interesting (I hope) informative reports about exhibitions that I’ve been to and artists that inspire me.
at The Mall Galleries 17 to 26 November 2023 I’m very pleased that my painting ‘Take a Breath’ is included in the ING Discerning Eye exhibition at the Mall Galleries this year.
I’m enjoying exhibiting my latest paintings alongside ‘Gaia’ by artist Luke Jerram and all the talented Richmond Art Society artists at the Landmark Teddington! On until 4pm Sunday 25th June 2023.
I’m pleased to be taking part in Kingston Artists Open Studios again this year. I’ll be exhibiting at FuseBox venue 23. Open Sat 13, Sun 14 and Sat 20, Sun 21 May 2023.
