I love Cottage Gardens and really enjoy painting garden scenes. This painting “The Walled Garden” which I exhibited at The Spring Art Fair in Teddington went to a new home.
Last Friday to Sunday 20-22 May, I exhibited at The Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington, South West London. It is a wonderful venue, a magnificent Church built in the 1880s.
Whilst demonstrating at Wisley RHS Spring Garden Show I managed to finish this painting of Craster Harbour which is famous for it’s kippers. You can see Dunstanburgh Castle in the background on this rugged Northumberland coast.
Last week I exhibited at the RHS Spring garden show at Malvern with Boffy Art Markets. Here’s my stand in the Wye hall. I enjoy demonstrating painting too whilst discussing my techniques and subject matter.
I’m delighted to be exhibiting at Delamore Arts in Devon. (Cornward, Ivybridge, PL21 9QT) from the 1st-31st May 2022. This is one of the four paintings that I shall be displaying there – ‘St. Michael’s Mount view’
I am busy this week preparing for Wisley RHS Garden show, where I shall be exhibiting with Craft in Focus, a contemporary craft and design fair. I have been making some decoupaged framed prints using some of my designs. Wisley is on from the 28th April-2nd May.
The Malvern Hills are such an inspiring landscape and I am excited to be running some art and dance sessions there at “Centre of the Hills” therapy centre in May. They have invited me to join their team of therapists. I shall be holding sessions such as Art for beginners and storytelling adventures for children […]
This is an intricate painting of a grapevine, birds and flowers which I imagine could flourish in a warm climate by the sea. The birds look a little bit exotic, a kind of very colourful pigeon!
Harbours are one of favourite subjects and this week I have just completed this painting of Craster harbour in Northumberland. I have included some fishing boats and I can still remember the smell of kippers. I think I shall have to incorporate Kippers into my next painting!
Here I am painting Lindisfarne. I am working with gouache on paper and I have just added some pearlescent pigment to give the painting a little shimmer.
