Hungerford Summer Festival Exhibition

Monet’s Window No 1 (bottom centre)

Lovely to be showing with other artists in TheCurve@Hungerford Hub & Library. Sponsored by Hungerford Summer Festival, the exhibition is open 10am to 4pm every weekend throughout the festival, closing on 14th July.

I’m also selling cards and a few of my drawings, mounted and ready to frame. Hope to see you there!

Storm Warning


Another scratchy painting. Paint it on then scrape it off to reveal the textured under-painting. This is a re-work of my original watercolour sketch of Shanklin Bay at the end of a spring day. I used the original composition for the structure, but referenced another sketch to convey (I hope) the heaving, weighty movement of sea and air as a storm gathers at the end of a hot day.

Painted in water mixable oils on board.

October 2018



Just dropped off another painting for show, this time with Newbury Art Group’s exhibition at West Berks Community Hospital in Thatcham where they have a gallery.  As part of the Open Studios initiative, the theme for the exhibition was movement.

This is my entry; Evening Swell, oil on paper. It is worked up from a water colour sketch I made some time ago of Shanklin Bay on the Isle of Wight.

Open Studios 2018


Today was handing-in day for Insight, the flagship exhibition organised by West Berkshire and North Hampshire Open Studios. This is my piece – Pilgrim Path, oil on board. Insight opens next weekend (12 May) at Arlington Arts Centre and runs to the end of the month.
