Future Events

As the pandemic showed us, events and exhibitions can suddenly change. This is the most up to date information on those events I’m participating in.  Including video on my youtube channel.

Paintings are always on display in the studio window and visitors are welcome but please ring or email beforehand. In order to keep everyone safe, visitors are restricted to one person or one household group in the studio at a time. Masks to be worn indoors according to government guidelines. Hand sanitiser will be available. Some days paintings will be hung outside, weather permitting. Please get in touch by phone 07818240116 or email [email protected]

Here’s the video walkthough created for Bucks Art Weeks 2020 in my old studio so you can get a feel for my studio set up. There’s a lot more space in my new studio. Please feel free to ask any questions.

Photographs are no substitute for real artwork, if you can't get to the studio videos will give you a better idea.
