Exhibition: Dorset Arts Week - Six weeks away. (26th May - 3rd June)

Hi Folks.

My next exhibition is now six weeks away and so the wheels of organisation are now kicking into gear. The exhibition will be held at the conservatory at Came House in Dorchester, which is surrounded by stunning landscapes of woodland and open fields. This is a great opportunity to get out of the house, see some beautiful artwork and get some fresh air in your lungs!

I have twenty or so new paintings which I am excited to share with you, so if you would like to come along, please get in touch so that I have a rough idea of numbers.

More information and updates will be posted in the next few weeks.

Thank you.

EXHIBITION: Windsor Contemporary Art Fair - Stand design.

This year I was keen to bring my stand up to a more professional standard and so invested in upgrading my show kit. Aside from a greeting card stand, print rack, tall boy and ipad stand, I had had in the back of my mind doing something that would set my space apart from my contemporaries.

I decided to create a black backdrop for my artwork, giving the colours a chance to 'pop' a little more that if it were on a white backing. The end result work well and was complemented by a number of visitors.

EXHIBITION: The Reading Contemporary Art Fair.

I would like to thank everyone who took the time to come along and visit my stand at the Reading Contemporary Art Fair last weekend - and especially to those of you who bought some of my artwork

It was great to share my most recent works and to run through their development, as well as to recall some of the adventures that I have recently been on.

As always, I had the opportunity to meet some lovely new, like-minded artists and I wish you all the best with your future work and hope to cross paths with you again.

My next exhibition will be in 7 weeks time at Sue Elton's Summer Exhibition, followed by The Big Art Show in Shrewsbury the weekend after. While I shall be exhibiting artwork recent paintings from Devon, I shall also be showing my new en plain air work from Dorset.

Stay tuned :)

EXHIBITION: The Oxford International Art Fair.

To celebrate the start of this weekend's exhibition at the Oxford International Art Fair, here are a few close ups from my latest painting Pathway to the Sun.

If you are around and about Oxford over the weekend, I encourage you to come along and have a look as after sunday (providing it doesn't sell?!) it'll be heading back down to Devon.

I began the painting on the 1st january and have been working on it pretty much non stop. It's been an incredible journey of learning and discovery and really enjoyable to be working on a large canvas again.

Working on a subject that has so much light bouncing around it has been both a challenge and a pleasure and has really made me pay more attention to using glazes more in the future.

I'm already excited about beginning my next painting and to integrate all the things I have learned on the Pathway to the Sun.
