I was delighted to win 1st prize in this year's Buxton Spa Prize competition.  The event requires artists to depict scenes in and around the town of Buxton, Derbyshire.  They have to work en plein air but are allowed to complete pictures away from the chosen location.  My winning painting is called Morning sunlight and shadows, Pavilion Gardens.  It is an acrylic on square canvas and can be seen on my Landscape page.  

I have other pictures on the go and will continue to share them via this site and social media.  I look forward to taking part in a couple more plein air events in the Autumn and then two exhibitions in December:  Drawing London Group at The Barbican Library and Art for Youth's Charity Exhibition 2018.  So more information on all of these will follow.

Since turning full time as an artist in late 2011, I have been able to produce more work, which people often and kindly describe as beautiful.  It is always based on direct observation and learnt drawing skills.  There is a bit more about me and my work on my Contact page.  I have a presence on social media too.
