• New paintings May 2020

    I began my latest series of paintings during the lockdown period in early May. I took my daily exercise walking in nearby Richmond Park where the respite from traffic noise highlighted the birdsong and I even heard a cuckoo on one occasion!

    Many people used their lockdown time to gather in family groups for picnics in the park and these scenes reminded me of the way that artists such as Antoine Watteau and Jean Baptiste Pater portrayed Arcadian scenes in the 18th century.

    So this latest series is in part a reinterpretation of 18th century FĂȘte ChampĂȘtre paintings and in part picnics in lockdown.

  • In-house Exhibition

    Due to the current pandemic all exhibitions that I had planned have been postponed or cancelled and so I decided to set up a mini gallery within my house to show some of my recent work.

    As always my work derives from my long established connection with nature and my focus recently has been on the proximity of the natural and the built environment and also current concerns about climate change.

    I aim to create tension and visual impact by contrasting painterly organic brush marks with structural geometric shapes and I use the potential of colour to evoke an emotional response.

    I’m currently experimenting with digital artwork. Just trying out ideas at the moment.

  • Exhibition July 2019

    I’m really looking forward to showing my new work in a group show along with nine other very talented artists. Together we bring a wide range of individual backgrounds, educations and work and are all evolving in our own unique manner whilst inspiring and supporting one another.

    Traditional media such as painting, drawing, sculpture and collage, combined with a poetic responsiveness to world issues, inform the heart of this show. We have chosen the distinctive derelict Victorian house, Safehouse 2 Gallery in Peckham, for the backdrop to our exhibition.

    Venue: Safehouse 2 Address: 137 Copeland Road, SE15 3SN

    Private View: Thursday 25 July 6 – 9pm
