New Gallery in Portugal

Mixed media on canvas. 104 x 104cm. Framed

Delighted to have been invited to exhibit some new paintings with the Corte Real Gallery in the Algarve in Portugal. The gallery contacted me at the beginning of the year saying how much they liked my work and that it was ‘those endless skies that does it for us’  These large artworks measure 104 x 104 cm square and were inspired by my recent walks along the stunning North Norfolk coast. I really enjoyed creating these pieces and just ordered some extra blue paint!

March 2018

It’s March and a dramatic weather front called the ‘Beast from the East’ brought deep snow and freezing cold winds. Trying to keep the studio warm enough to work in was challenging as even my paint water froze! Despite the cold there were work deadlines looming to complete four large scale paintings 104 x 104 cm for a new gallery called the Corte Real Gallery in the Algarve, Portugal. As you can see from the photographs most of my inspiration for this month has come from sketching at Holkham beach, well known for its vast skies and sandy beach.  I spent a wonderful morning sketching the horizon watching the clouds drifting by and the tide flowing in. These sketches were used  as a reference to create two of the artworks which are wrapped and ready for shipping out to Portugal now the snow has gone.



It’s been a very enjoyable journey but also frustrating at times when things just don’t seem to flow and work up how I want them! but I guess that’s part of being an artist….

Thank you to everyone who has signed up to my summer workshops, they are now both fully booked and if there is enough interest then I’m considering holding another one, so do get in touch if you’re looking to try something new!

February is here, the snowdrops are out and I’ve been walking along the North Norfolk coast for some quick sketching sessions.

Since the middle of January I have been enjoying working on several large scale coastal paintings.  These mixed media artworks measure 100 x 100cm and shall be available at various new outlets, galleries, exhibitions and Norfolk Open Studios.  Some of this new collection will be on display during my two solo shows this summer:

Expressive Coastal Art Workshops with artist Tracey Ross

 Saturday 30th June & Saturday 7th July 2018 – 10am-4pm

at Burnham Overy Staithe Village Hall, New Road, PE31 8JD

This year I am running 2 exciting workshops called ‘from sketch to painting’. Enjoy a day using mixed media techniques, suitable for beginners and the more experienced artists who want to develop their work further.

The idea is to spend the morning sketching along the coastal path and around the harbour of Burnham Overy Staithe and to gain some hands on experience with sketching out in the open. If it is too wet to sketch we shall use this time working in the village hall.

Then after lunch everyone will choose one of their sketches to work up into a final painting using mixed media. There will be tuition and demonstrations throughout the day with useful tips on how I work as an artist. The aim is for everyone to have a fun and enjoyable day learning lots of new ideas about the challenges of sketching and how to take a sketch into a painting.

The cost for the day is £50 per person.

Please bring your own art materials for the day and a packed lunch. A materials list will be provided once your booking has been confirmed.

Tea, coffee, cold refreshments and biscuits will be available.

All workshops need to be paid in full beforehand and any fees will not be refundable in the event of a student’s non-attendance.

If you’d like to book a place do email me or call me on 07786 401396
