I will again be participating in Wimbledon Art Fair (formerly Open Studios) 16-19 November.  Further information can be found on the website www.wimbledonartfair.com 

I took part in Windsor Contemporary Art Fair recently, following on from my success in the Windsor & Eton en plein air painting event last July.  A photograph of me with the Governor of Windsor Castle, and the winning painting, can be found on Wimbledon Art Studios' Facebook page.   I was very pleased to sell a watercolour of Sloane Square at the Fair. 

I am also pleased to have a picture in this year's Discerning Eye exhibition, to be held at The Mall Galleries, London 16-26 November, admission free.

I was delighted to win 1st prize in the watercolour category at Paint Out Norwich 2017.  My painting, called 'Five past Four...' can be seen on my Urban Scenes page, alongside a couple of other watercolours from the event.

I also enjoyed taking part in other en plein air events at Dedham Vale and Wells-next-the-Sea, in September.  I have loaded two of my pictures from Wells to the top row of my Landscape page (apologies for inconsistent colour in the beach picture, my photo not the painting)! 

My 3rd prize-winning painting from the Buxton Spa Prize Competition 2017, 'Going to the Opera', can be seen on my Urban Scenes page.

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.
