Bright crisp November days are here and there’s a chilly nip in the air. However, in keeping with the rich autumnal hues I have been inspired by the beautiful views around my studio and coastal walks, creating several new paintings for galleries here and abroad. Top tip! with shorter days it’s always challenging to keep ahead of the fading light during my painting sessions and it’s never a good idea to mix paint under artificial lights, mainly as they completely change the tonal values, so always mix enough paint to see you through!
If you’d like visit my studio to view my paintings please get in touch:
Autumnal sunny October – a season of changing colours bringing fresh inspiration. The warm weather has been a delight to sketch in, especially after my sketching holiday on Patmos – a small Greek island where Saint John wrote ‘Revelation’, the last book in the bible.
Since coming back I’ve been walking and sketching in the dunes at Holkham and Wells-next-the-Sea, capturing the light and exploring different mark making ideas using Inktense blocks and pencil. Meanwhile back in the studio I’ve been working on finishing two new pieces for the Corte-Real Gallery in Portugal – more about this and other galleries on my News post. Enjoy the rest of this glorious sunshine!

After months of preparation, I’m so looking forward to hanging my largest exhibition to date. ‘L I G H T’ is at Saint Nicholas Church in Salthouse, NR25 7XH.

I shall be there everyday 10.30am – 5.00pm. Free entry. All welcome.
Announcing two solo shows this summer. Both exhibitions will feature large scale artworks situated in spiritual settings.

Opening daily from 9.00am.

What an exciting time the month of June is turning out to be! Thank you to everyone who visited me during Norfolk Open Studios. I’ve so enjoyed meeting lots of new visitors this year and I do appreciate how much effort it takes travelling all over the county seeking out the studios taking part.
In-between Open Studios I’ve been busy adding the finishing touches to the paintings and getting ready for my second solo show at Creake Abbey Cafe in North Creake, NR21 9LF. ‘Norfolk Horizons’ openings on the 13th June and continues all through the summer until the 16th October. This exhibition features several large and medium scale artworks exploring the theme of coastal horizons.
‘H20 The Art of Wet’ 5-29th June is now on, featuring 18 artists exploring the theme of water. This diverse show is well worth seeing and my recent painting ‘Tear the Heavens Open’ has been a key piece for taking my practice further with regards to the marks, textures and tension I’ve created within the work.
Just about ready for running the first of my art workshops at Burnham Overy Staithe village hall. Both my workshops are now full but I aim to hold some more if I have enough interest – so do get in touch if you’d like to explore mixed media.
