  1. After a wonderful week exhibiting at Birdwood House Gallery in Totnes, my first ever BIG solo show was such an overwhelming success!

    I cannot express how privaledged I was to meet some truly wonderful people there, both at the PV night and throughout the week! Totnes is alive and buzzing with Artists and bohemian souls who exude wonderful energy.

    The PV night was amazing, I had 70 people turn up, friends and family to show their support and a great night was had by all. Many sales were made, with 7 original paintings selling both there and throughout the week. I was also commissioned a large piece of Art for a wonderful couple's new home.

    The exhibition was to promote awareness of the vital importance of protecting wildlife and the environment, and I had a special guest attend Mrs Jacqi Hodgson who is the parlimentary candidate for the Green Party here who very kindly opened the show!

    I am donating 10% of profits made to The Woodland Trust Charitable organisation for the fantastic job they do protecting and preserving wildlife, trees and the environment.

    After deductions made from sales I have raised £212 for this worthy charity which was 10% percent of my earnings during that week after expenses.

    I couldn't be happier with the result!! Thanks to Anthea Tuckey who is the Art Director of Birdwood House Gallery for all your help and words of wisdom!

    Sadly it was such a busy night I did not get the chance to take any photos of the buzzing Private View evening, so I took some pictures of the gallery the next day. It was amazing to think we managed to get 70 people inside. The atmosphere was electric!

    A few photos of the Gallery after the main PV opening night. I met this wonderful couple who were thrilled with both their purchases. The lovely Morven from London, soon to hopefully move to Totnes and her man Jamie, both respectively bought 'Wake Up' my signature piece for the exhibition resonated greatly with Morven so he's gone to a new amazing owner! Jamie bought 'Fossils' one of my latest pieces and is still looking for some of the many creatures hidden within the painting!

  2. Delighted to be returning to London to exhibit some bright bold abstract pieces at the Parallax Art Fair in Chelsea's Old Town Hall on the Kings Road. It's a beautiful big old ornate historic building in the heart of busy bustling Chelsea in London.

    Having lived in London many years ago, I was fortunate enough to be quite close to the Kings Road, so know it well. I used to shop in a wonderful retro little place there called Steinberg & Tolkien! You'd go downstairs and they had a huge selection of second hand designer vintage coats, jackets, hats, etc! It really was an aladdin's cave for shoppers looking for unique one off pieces with a bit of history to them! I believe the establishment has since gone sadly. Happy memories!

    I am excited to be going in a couple of months. The exhibition runs across the weekend from Saturday 22nd July to Sunday 23rd July. Opening times 11am - 5pm both days. Free entry.

    So, if you happen to be out and about in and around the Sloane area toward the end of July you must pop by and have a look at this exhibition, it has a huge range of affordable Art, catering for all tastes.
