I have had a wonderful 2013, with fantastic support from clients and galleries for which I am very, very, grateful.  I am going into 2014 having had fantastic sales and response to the work in galleries and a few commissions to keep me busy in January and February.

I have had continued support from Opus Gallery in Ashbourne,, and a lovely stream of Christmas sales at Contemporary Six in Manchester, And on my birthday in November Vermilian Gallery in Knutsford,, took my work and used the work for the Christmas window display. The owners of Vermilian Gallery have been tremendously encouraging and enthusiastic about the work.  It has been lovely to have had this encouragement for the past year and I hope 2014 brings continued success. I am really looking forward to 2014.

Summer 2013

Gearing up for summer there are so many shows and events to do.

I have just stood the Art Market in Holmfirth a very good quality artist and designers fair with a stringent application process. This means that there are some very high quality designers showing and some wonderful creations on sale.

Whilst I was in Holmfirth I put the two paintings that had been accepted into the Macmillan Trust Art Show in the Civic Hall in Holmfirth. The show looked like it was going to be very lively, full to the brim of interesting paintings. It should be good and I would recommend it.

Next there is the fantastic Peak District Artisan’s 6th Annual Great Dome Fair. This is held at the Dome in Buxton Derbyshire and this year host 62 artists and designers. It is a lovely venue with a good atmosphere and vibe. So I hope you are able to attend on the preview evening on the 19th July, see There will be live music and lots to see.

Hello Everyone

I have been incredibly busy and have not found any time to pass on all the news, so I will get it all done in one go now as it looks like things will run away with me again.

I have loads of really good news.

I was lucky enough to have Wendy Levy from the Wendy J. Levy Gallery in Didsbury, Manchester come and visit the studio.  Wendy kindly asked me to submit three pieces for her Summer Open Exhibition and has very kindly accepted the three pieces for the show. So this Summer I will be showing at The Wendy J Levy Contemporary Art Gallery.

My work has also been accepted by Opus Gallery in Ashbourne.  The owner, Catherine Caffrey, said that she has not had such a good response to new work for a very long time and has sold a number of pieces of work,

I have also been taken on by Cloud Gallery in Chester and also in Brighton.

And lastly I have been selected for Art in the Pen 2013 in Skipton. I am really looking forward to this event, which has developed a very good reputation and hosts some very good artists and some wonderful art. I have booked my little hotel and although I know that it will be work I am sure that this will be a real pleasure as well,
