This is a new adventure and opportunity for artists living in North Norfolk. I’m looking forward to opening my studio from the 29th May – 6th June. I’ll be open everyday 10.00am – 5.00pm.
I’m participating in an art trail called ‘Colourful Coast’. There are three of us taking part, Nicholas Elliott lives in Fakenham and Vanda Richards in Colkirk, just outside Fakenham. I’ve posted some examples of their work and we’re very much look forward to seeing you.
Come and enjoy the pretty cottage garden and the lovely views from the studio. Social distancing measures will be in place.

Thanks to my wonderful daughter for bringing this good cause to my attention.
I felt I wanted to help raise awareness so I’ve happily donated this painting to help support and raise money for @jamesplaceuk. James’ Place is a charity in Liverpool which helps to support men who are at risk, and may be suffering from anxiety and suicidal thoughts. I’m thrilled to hear that ‘Day Light’ 46x46cm was sold within two weeks of me posting it to them!
If you’d like to help support by donating an artwork please get in touch with me or James’ Place.
Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd December. Time 10.00am till 3.30pm

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:
