I’m delighted to announce I have been recently taken on as a gallery artist by Cricket Fine Art, Chelsea, London. This beautiful gallery shows a range of contemporary artwork including some stunning abstract work which I love. Take a look at their website here.

Four of my recent paintings will be on show in their Summer Exhibition opening soon, including the two shown here. If you’re in the area I hope you will pop in.

art on the heath…

After a very busy and successful Charity Private View on Wednesday, the Affordable Art Fair in Hampstead, London, is well underway. Held in a huge contemporary marquee on Hampstead Heath this fair is an exciting and popular event with activities for everyone as well as a wide variety of art to browse and buy.

I’m proud to be represented once again by Sheridan Russell Gallery, whose stand, as always, looks stunning. My work hangs alongside contemporary paintings by Jean Noble, Anne McCormack, and sculpture by Patricia Volk, Lucianne Lasalle and others.

The art fair continues until Sunday 19 June. Well worth a visit!

Ancient and Modern…

My solo exhibition, ‘Breathing space’ at Anteros Arts Foundation, Norwich, which has now finished was a selection of my recent abstracted landscapes. It was particularly exciting for me to see my latest series of work framed and hung together.

The Main Gallery at Anteros is a lovely medieval space in which to hang works of art. I liked the contrast of my own contemporary work with the ancient architecture.

Many thanks to all those who made the effort to visit and wrote such lovely comments in my guest book!
