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.

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!
